2009.05.25 Reflections on Layer Tennis | Jason Santa Maria

I know I'm really late on this one, but it's very worth the linking. My favorite part is probably the cheat sheet (though I'd like to know how much these guys prepare in other ways). Very insightful to read their thoughts and see what they did. (this has been sitting in my feed reader forever, just waiting for me to read) #

2009.05.25 Freedom to Surf - The University of Melbourne

“People who do surf the Internet for fun at work - within a reasonable limit of less than 20% of their total time in the office - are more productive by about 9% than those who don’t.” I've worked at a couple places that are hyper sensitive about the allowed sites, and I can't tell you how frustrating it can be to be stymied of a simple mental break. (another oldie I'd been hanging onto) #

2009.05.18 Government runs nation's only legal pot garden - CNN.com

I'm not the target audience here, nor am I exactly well-versed with the uh... product involved here, but for whatever reason I found this to be very interesting. What I tend to find interesting is the use of normally outlawed drugs for medicinal purposes, or in controlled environments. Don't expect me to keep posting more about this topic. Seriously. #

2009.05.15 Wolfram|Alpha

Undoubtedly you'll see more about this elsewhere, but I was fascinated by what this search engine could do, as well as its potential. Be sure to watch the intro video to get a good idea of what it does. #

2009.05.04 Grammar Girl :: Who Versus Whom

I thought the cheating trick was pretty handy: "When you're trying to decide whether to use who or whom, ask yourself if the answer to the question would be he or him." That ending m is the thing to match. Sure, there's still plenty of room for questions, but that's just how English is. #

2009.01.26 Welcome to Hogan's Alley!

For over 60 years, cartoonist and illustrator Roy Doty made his own Christmas Card he sent to friends and colleagues. This interview talks about him, them, and shows off some of his work. I think its a great tradition (that of home-made Christmas cards). #

2009.01.26 Read This Post. Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect $200

A few facts about some of your favorite (at least, my favorite) games. I love Neatorama's investigatory articles on stuff like this. Mainly just foodforthought, and interesting trivial knowledge. #

2009.01.26 Literary Clock

Super easy project, make a book into a clock. Perfect for a child's bedroom--use a storybook. Chances of me actually doing this? Slim to nil. How cool I think this would be to have? Very. #

2009.01.26 Dark Roasted Blend: World's Most Dangerous Roads, Part 6

One word: wow. #

2008.12.03 The Origin of The Three Stooges - Neatorama

My earliest exposure to awesomeness. Very interesting to see how they started. #
