We start off with some fun links for stats geeks. Worldometers gives you birth/death/etc. info in real time! HealthMap shows you what diseases are spreading where! Longbets (found via Tim) lets you guess what's going to happen to all of us down the road!

Via the Pragmatic Librarian: this take on the New Information Professional is an interesting read, especially for academic librarians under 35. I'm neither at the moment (yikes), but Bunny is both, so it's relevant!

Frank Zappa fans will be happy to hear that a memorial fund in his name is supporting the ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Freedom to Read Foundation. Woo!

And finally, if you're in or near Ohio, you might consider seeing the Mazza Museum in Findlay, which is devoted to the art of children's picture books. Sounds neat.

Tomorrow: links from others!
