Look, anarchist librarian t-shirts!

I challenge you to watch the Hi-Fi Sci-Fi Library video and not have the song stuck in your head for several hours. In slightly related news, members of Generation X would now rather be labled "Generation Tech." Really? Admittedly, the main reason I am enamoured of the new Addictomatic news site is their cool little robot mascot.

Yahoo and Google now have their 2008 election sites set up. (According to Yahoo, Ohio is once again a battleground state.) Meanwhile, you can check out what happened at previous political conventions throughout history, thanks to Poynter.

More informational resources: the 2008 World Population Data Sheet is out, with all sorts of interesting facts, and the CDC has put up a really interesting (although tragic) website devoted to the 1918 influenza pandemic. (Is anyone else seeing TV commercials lately about potential pandemics? They're a little freaky.)

Tomorrow: links from others!

I'm dropping out of law school right this minute! What difference does annnyyyyything make? We're gonna die! If not from the pandemic, something else just as awful! Like being pressed into the grill of a speeding 18 wheeler! Sliding under a gas truck! YOU'RE GONNA BE DEAD! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!

What difference does anyyyything make? I ask. (I'm just kidding. Kind of.)
