The LA Times has a bunch of Printable trail maps. I think I need to get out there and do me some hiking.
Delivery is an animated short made by Till Nowak. It sort of reminded me of that animated short — I think it was called “Smile” — the one with the guy that invents the product that makes people happy. Same kind of dingy world view. Anyway, certainly worth the download.
Stray Matter is a nice photoblog. I really like the combination of images and stories. I’m sure there must be lots of people doing that, but this is the first one I’ve come across.

I’d never heard of porphyrins until just a minute ago, and now I think they’re the coolest freaking things ever. Cool…Cool…Cool…Cool!: Shelnutt says the nanodevice could efficiently use the entire visible and ultraviolet parts of the solar spectrum absorbed by the tubes to produce hydrogen, one of the Holy Grails of chemistry. These nanotube devices [...]
I think the value of getting an MBA would be in the networking and in getting back into a traditional classroom environment. Still, from a pure love of useful knowledge approach, there’s probably something to be said for the The Josh Kaufman “Personal MBA” Program. I’ve read a few of the recommended books and thought [...]
