The Trib is featuring an interesting article on the Indian Navy's sinking of a pirate ship. It's fascinating enough on its own, but coincidentally I read a post from the wonderful BLDGBLOG this morning about a Google Maps mashup that charts pirate attacks. If you're further interested in the subject, I highly recommend William Langewiesche's The Outlaw Sea; alternately, here's an interview with him about the book.
