Some Stuff I've Found, Possibly Interesting

Here are a few sites I have explored recently. Feel free to explore:

This is some recent research which could put the cat among the pigeons:
Test-Taking Cements Knowledge Better Than Studying, Researchers Say -

A neat idea to leave journals for people to contribute to. None have made it to Bhutan!
A real page-turner: The results of the 1,000 Journals Project are revealed - Features, Art - The Independent: ""

This one is especially for Anja and Elisa. Some neat maths from doodling and lots of other cool maths stuff.:
YouTube - Vihart's Channel

There is an article about her here:
Vi Hart’s Videos Bend and Stretch Math to Inspire -

Wow, I never knew what the people at IBM had done. This documentary has music by Philip Glass:
YouTube - IBM Centennial Film: They Were There - People who changed the way the world works

Please check out Zeb's blog after his escape from Bhutan. Great fun to read:
Flaming Thunderbolt of Wisdom

Jon too, though Jon is more intent on enjoying himself at the moment:
Happy Ending Offer

That should keep you busy. I have to go and check the Australian Open.


  1. The girls and I watched Vi's doodling. Great stuff!

  2. Send me a doodle then!
    I can feature it on the blog.
