Friday Links

“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”
― Alan W. Watts

Another busy week and I literally worked myself sick (again) and lost my voice as of this morning. But on the whole I’m pleased with how my projects are moving along, freelance is becoming much more manageable, and the weather is gorgeous. There’s nothing to complain about! Here are your links, tell me what you’re up to this weekend.

“Hashbrown, no filter.” And if you’re not watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, get educated!

Wonderful prehistoric artwork.

Food for thought. Since I stopped following most of the parts of the internet related to mormonism (affectionately referred to as the Bloggernacle), it’s been interesting to see how things that pop up in my Facebook feed, for instance, have changed. Our world is built on algorithms and information is no different. When I was immersed in one community and its conflicts, it’s news and conversations and events was practically all I saw. When I stepped away, it was eye opening to see how comparatively small that amount of information had been. And it was even more interesting to see how the algorithms of information created echo chambers. In spite of the torrential flow of data out there, unprecedented in human history, I think media has allowed us to isolate ourselves pretty easily with those with whom we already tend to agree.

Dandies forever!

Well, that’s just…horrible

I ask my eternal question when things like this happen, how did you lose this stuff?!

Development is an complicated industry.

Let’s do it, Jeff!

Synesthesia is such an interesting thing, and this artwork stemming from it is downright gorgeous.

Why not?

Nerdy things to look forward to!
