Morning LInkage (Jul 10)

by lara on July 10, 2009

Good morn­ing y’all. Lots of links today, good for a slow sum­mer
Fri­day. Let’s get started shall we?

More busi­ness card tom­fool­ery. Bet­ter than that chem­istry set you had
as a kid. It’s a dark detec­tor.

Much ear­lier tech. Charles Bab­bage and Ada Lovelace start in their own
comic (Syd­ney Padua is very, well just very)

The parts of sev­ens — seven animals…

…who can fly (but are not birds, or bugs, or bats)

…who changed his­tory (FSVO)

Some ani­mals, some other things. all edi­ble. (Maybe.)

House and Home:

Mas­sive col­lec­tion of info on win­dow film. Which besides being cool is
um, cool. Here mostly so that I can send it to one of the thou­sands of
(liar) peo­ple who get this via BCC.

I have chalk­board pan­els on the front of my fridge. It makes life in a
two per­son we don’t see each other while coher­ent for most of the week
pos­si­ble. Here are two more slightly less spa­cious chalk boards.

For a sim­pler life, a to-do list I can han­dle. I can’t fig­ure out if
these are for sale or not. They should be.

Tak­ing your sprog to the gro­cery store. Make him earn his keep by
car­ry­ing the list. (What! $35.00)

Then you can put him to work in the kitchen. (Flat pack fur­ni­ture hack­ing, yay)

Then while your boy is doing the dishes the girls can get on with the
impor­tant work of upset­ting the bal­ance of power.

One of the things that the larger Kin­dle DX has promised is access to
mate­r­ial that doesn’t work well in the trade paper­back for­mat that the
kin­dle 2 was aim­ing for. One I didn’t fore­see is sheet music. Grow­ing
up parts of the house were over­run with the stuff and no-one could
find their own or remem­ber which of the huge cheater tomes con­tained
what. (Mr. Biggs taste in music is ques­tion­able.)

From music to pictures.

The ques­tion of pho­tographs and real­ity par­tic­u­larly in jour­nal­ism.
David W. pro­vides a few words and a set of links to some thought­ful
mate­r­ial.

The National Por­trait Gal­ley (UK) has a show that I want to see: Gay
Icons. Por­traits of influ­en­tial peo­ple (not all gay) cho­sen by a panel
of 10 influ­en­tial gay peo­ple. The web­site shows only two of those
por­traits. But the show is impor­tant enough to merit men­tion and I’m
going to order the cat­a­log.

The part of 35s …

… 35 cool pho­tog­ra­phy sites on the web. There goes my week­end and
illu­sion that I might some­day have a wor­thy port­fo­lio site.

… love the sparkly stars and poof­ing clouds and it’s all things
kitty. Happy 35th you evil beast.

’til Mon­day my good peo­ple. Stay safe.
