Weekly Linkroll

The blog’s been quite quiet this week, hasn’t it? Sorry about that. Life has been busy around here. The new short story (working title: Zed’s Story) is coming along. I’m hoping to have it to my alpha reader this weekend. I’ve been reading a lot, too, reviews of which I’ll be posting here eventually. There’s a post brewing about that.

But today is Sunday, and that means links for you. I’m renaming this weekly feature. Not all the links I post come from blogs, so calling it a blogroll isn’t very accurate. Weekly Linkroll it is. Unless I think of something else.

So, what has the past week brought us?

Wind map
A personal art project using surface wind data across the U.S. Fascinating and beautiful.

CHARLES A. LINDBERGH- Mystical Experience
Ellis Nelson ponders Lindbergh’s experience of altered consciousness during his flight across the Atlantic Ocean in the Spirit of St. Louis.

Monty Python’s “Galaxy Song”
Science! And Eric Idle! Gratitude every day posted this earlier this week, sharing gratitude for Monty Python. I concur.

Don’t believe everything you’re told: Or, lessons from the pig cage
Visible and Real discovers that guinea pigs don’t always do what you think they will. “She didn’t know she wasn’t supposed to be able to do this. She just did it.” Something for us humans to consider.

Father of the Year Helps Dress-Wearing Son Feel Comfortable By Putting on a Skirt Himself
The coolest dad ever? I think so.

The Buffy Effect
A study seems to show that strong women in TV shows, like, say, Buffy, may be more important than plot content (including sex, violence, and even sexual violence) when it comes to shaping viewer attitudes to women. Um, duh? Still, nice to see data making the case.
