Web Miscellany: Compilation #51

Hi there! How is your week going? This week flew by in a flash and, quite frankly, I couldn’t tell you what I’ve been up to. Last week, my phone got stuck in a reboot loop, so I lost everything. While it sucks, I am vehemently against storing all of my personal contacts and photos on the cloud. I’ve learned my lesson: back up more often. The thing I’m most disappointed about is my podcast lineup. Any suggestions for my podcasting fresh start?

What are you up to this weekend? A friend is back in town after several months overseas and I’m so excited to catch up. It seems so hard to make and keep friends through adulthood. Is it just me? Hope you have a good one! Here are a few links from around the web:

  1. “The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
  2. I was obsessed with my Spirograph as a kid, so I simply love this mechanical, modern-day equivalent.
  3. What the fuck should I do with my life? (A step-by-step process)
  4. A loaded newletter article: Zuboff’s surveillance capitalism. Big-tech-brother. Architecture that is more than green. Paradox Mystery format. More-than-human design. Lots of interesting stuff here.
  5. Astronauts will bake cookies in space to see how they cook in zero gravity.
  6. “Perhaps, instead of organizing school around data acquisition and regurgitation, we could identify what the skills are and separate them out, teaching domain knowledge in conjunction with the skill, not the other way around.”
  7. ER doctor, students invent device for common hospital complaint: rings stuck on fingers.
  8. Did you know… Kodak once sued the American government for nuclear fallout in New Mexico that infiltrated water used to manufacture the cardboard in which they shipped their film, which was damaged by the radiation. Kodak owned a nuclear reactor and, after the lawsuit, they gained top secret insight into all upcoming nuclear test sites.
  9. Relationship Happiness and Your DNA: How One Gene Encodes Emotional Sensitivity
  10. For some reason, I’ve had Kansas’ Dust in the Wind stuck in my head for weeks. I’m sorry / you’re welcome.

    1. Oh yeah!! To this day, I still thank my parents for their stellar music collection. My boyfriend spent his childhood listening to terrible 80s pop music. *cringe*


      1. Oh. Oh no. I’m sorry you’re likely listening to Madonna, The Cure, and Paula Abdul (or whatever your rough listening equivalent of cringe is).


      2. Yeah.., said he basically wore headphone whenever he was driving with his parents, so he could listen to Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins instead of his mother’s favorites, including “Dancing Queen”. Sounds like a mildly traumatic childhood.
