Friday Fun Links

September 23, 2011

– I read this article about Mister Rogers yesterday and cried approximately five times. I then found myself wondering if someone like Mister Rogers would ever be given a second glance in this culture. Sure, we all have a chance to use our voice, but it seems that the quiet voices of reason and compassion are too often drowned out by moms wielding tiaras and hate-filled political figures. Just something to think about.

– On a lighter note, do you have a Facebook account? Do you like things? Then how about hopping on over to Facebook and liking the Taking Back Tiffany page? It’s part of my attempt to become a famous blogger so my professional wardrobe can legitimately consist of stretchy pants.

– I read this blog a while ago and meant to link to it, but better late than never. Here are 10 myths about introverts, taken from the book The Introvert Advantage. As an introvert, I can tell you that there are a lot of misconceptions about us. Basically, we’re geniuses and we need time alone to hone that genius. That’s just my interpretation of the facts. I could be off a little.

– What’s better than gazing at stars, wrapped up in a blanket and trying to see the stars through all the light pollution? How about your very own star projector? Fine, I’ll admit it—real stars are better. But this is like the grown-up version of those plastic glow-in-the-dark stars you had as a kid.

– Found via Tyler Stanton’s blog, here is a site that shows you all the things that Apple is worth more than. Including the entire economy of Singapore, all the farm land in Iowa and South Dakota, and the value of every single home in Atlanta combined. Well okay then.

    Connecting two of your links, check out the iMac in the star projector picture. Rockin’ the old school Mac! I remember when Scott first got his; straight sci-fi in the dorm. We had one donated to the TeenCenter last year; since none of the teens had ever seen one, they thought it was a new, really expensive computer. (Even though it’s almost 10 years old, it still works better than all the other old computers in the Club.)
