Once a journalist, always a journalist, I guess; I'm fascinated in a horrified sort of way with the ongoing News Of the World phone hacking scandal, and watching as the Guardian refreshes each minute with more information about the paper's imminent shutdown. 

Speaking of phones, sort of: Visualize the Connected States of America! Put in a specific county and you can see what areas are called most often. Apparently my county calls LA and NYC a lot, along with Florida and, bizarrely, Hawaii.

A happy library story for once: a library working on the honor system reopens in Massachusetts. (Garden tools available for checkout!)

As seen on Metafilter; The Milwaukee Public Library has put its historical recipe index online. Awesome retro food parties await!

Tomorrow: links from others. Stay tuned.
