Now that E3 has properly wrapped, it’s time for the retrospectives to set in. And right out the gate is this bitingly accurate (I know because I was there) comment about the so-called “professionalism” of the event.

The Guardian has an interview with Sony VP Kazuo Hirai on Sony’s response (ahem, failure to respond) to the PSN hack.

Not to imply that only Sony is coming away from E3 a little pink in the cheeks, Nintendo’s stock dropped twice after the Wii U was unveiled. It’s easy to see why, with cynical reflections like this one coming from Gamers with Jobs’ Shawn Andrich.

Phil Plait brings us new developments on one of the most striking sights of the night sky, a changing supernova.

I was expecting a list like this to be populated by Carl Sagan and Richard Dawkins, you know, rockstars in the celebrity sense. But no, io9 has a list on 10 musicians who also study or profess in the sciences.
