Wings

  • These Top 14 Astronomy Pictures from 2010 are incredible – I particularly like shots of the moons of Saturn, and the dunes of Mars.
  • A couple of very thought provoking posts about intellectual property.
  • I really liked this post by Flinthart about lifelong learning.
  • A couple of interesting videos from TED – Brene Brown’s talk on vulnerability, and Dan Gilbert’s talk on happiness.
  • The podcast The Marketplace of Ideas has some very varied and interesting interviews in the archives.
  • From Brain PickingsAround the World in 80 Diets, and Your Brain on Love.
  • Studies in Crap, a look at books found in second hand stores, makes me cry with laughter – examinations of books like Unicorn Vengeance (which contains neither unicorns, nor vengeance, but does contain possibly the worst sentence ever written), and The Living Animals of the World from 1901, which says of koalas, “These animals make a peculiarly plaintive cry when molested in any way.”
