Happy Mother’s Day! Here are my weekly notes:
- You know the baby on the cover of Nirvana’s Nevermind album? He worked on the iconic Obama HOPE posters.
- The iPad will be available in Canada on May 28. Prices start at $549.
- Located in Northern Alberta, just inside Wood Buffalo National Park, the largest beaver dam in the world is visible from space!
- Here are the results of Randall Munroe’s color survey. Over five million colors were named across 225,000 user sessions, creating a great data set to explore.
- Some neat research on projecting visualizations throughout the home.
- Saw Iron Man 2 today and enjoyed it. Robert Downey Jr. was great once again, but the final battle scene was a little underwhelming. And the “you complete me” scene from the trailer was nowhere to be found in the actual film.
Sharon and I volunteered at Homeless Connect today. It’s such a rewarding experience! The next one is scheduled for October.
