You’ve made it to the last Friday in January 2011.
» One Year, One Canadian
“For the year of 2011, I’m living Canadian. For 12 months, I will only buy Canadian products, eat Canadian food and consume Canadian media.”
An interesting little project.
» 1957 Time Capsule
A blog that posts a daily entry about what happened on this date in the year 1957.
» Information is Beautiful: Horoscoped
“Do horoscopes really all just say the same thing? We scraped & analysed 22,000 to see.”
I am a data-mining nerd so I found this interesting. What if they just published the same posting every day and just called it “Encouragement”?

“On July 7th 2010 I received an email with an attached image named ‘IMG_0309.JPG’. At that moment, despite having seen that particular naming convention hundreds of times, I was propelled to start searching for the file name, img_0309, on various search engines and photography websites.”
Kind of fascinating.
