A 24-year-old Oxford history graduate is doing something wonderful for all of you right now: narrating World War II on Twitter, in real time. It may not be as academic as a John Keegan book, but so far it's excellent.

"ASIMOV WAS WRONG!" How's about that for a provocative statement? It's a reference to the sci-fi legend's famous laws of robotics, which stipulated that robots should never allow humans to come to harm (and other bits of fluffy-headed peacenik dogma).
