I often file away interesting tidbits that I come across, with the intent of sharing them here in this space.
However, I’d not done a very good job of actually getting into a workflow of doing so. I’d like to change that, though, and try to post a few, maybe a couple of times a month.
Therefore, here are a few things I’ve come across lately, that I’ve found interesting or helpful.
The Washington Post pulled together some fascinating and beautiful graphics in preparation for the upcoming Solar Eclipse on August 21st. I find them to be fascinating–maybe because my crew and I are planning a road trip to South Carolina for the eclipse. But also because they are just so well done. Very cool stuff.
Ok, here’s another really geeky thing–in this illustration, each of the elements are shown with a corresponding “everyday” way in which we interact with them. Definitely sciency nerdy.
Yep, another graphic–check out which famous book has your home state as a setting. I want to read all of them now.
I really enjoyed reading this article by Dan Darling–solid, encouraging and motivating.
I love this idea being implemented in Brazil–probably because I really enjoy mass transportation, such as the subways of NYC and Elevated Trains of Chicago and LA, and because I love literature. Such a cool idea to promote both. This article is from 2016; I hope they are still doing something similar today.
