I wanted to point out that almost everything about science is changing because of the impact of information technology. Experimental, theoretical, and computational science are all being affected by the data deluge, and a fourth, “data-intensive” science paradigm is emerging. The goal is to have a world in which all of the science literature is online, all of the science data is online, and they interoperate with each other. Lots of new tools are needed to make this happen.
Note: Jim Gray will forever be linked to defining the fourth paradigm, that of "data-intensive" science

The ship passed over Nuremberg, where fringe politician Adolf Hitler, whose Nazi Party had been trounced in the 1928 elections, had just delivered a speech touting selective infanticide. Then it flew east of Frankfurt, where a Jewish woman named Edith Frank was caring for her newborn, a girl named Anne.
Note: A brilliant idea, a yoking of tragic images, a dark foreshadowing.

“But Mr. de Zoet may pass through sea gate and away, over ocean. But I—all Japanese”—Ogawa listens to Hanzaburo and his friend’s conspiratorial grumbles—“prisoners all life. Who plot to leave is executed. Who leave and return from abroad is executed.
Note: Japan's borders were closed since the beginning of the period of seclusion (or isolation/Sakoku) that began in 1635.
