Well, that was a week. I'm back and healthier, but the website managed to get sick too. (It's fixed now, despite any warnings you may still be getting; the warnings should disappear shortly.) On to links, then...

The Occupy Wall Street movement is gathering steam at a rapid rate; here's a map of what's going on where. Holly also sent a great summary of the "Occupy Sesame Street" meme that's going around Twitter (you can check for more updates, too!).

Also from Holly: a changing station like no other. Hee.

From Cassandra: a proud progressive hillbilly's take on current world problems. Definitely worth a read.

Also from Cassandra: the secret life of pronouns. Sounds scandalous, doesn't it?

From Julie: it's not too early to begin preparations for celebrating Charles Dickens's 200th birthday next year!

And finally, happy Ada Lovelace Day to everyone, and especially for women working in the sciences.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.

RE: Secret life of Pronouns

According to the site, I have an abnormally high need for achievement, but zero need for power, maybe that's why I cannot fulfill my need to achieve? Maybe one needs to crave power and control to do things. Who knows?
