Happy Preservation Week! Go and appreciate something historic.

Speaking of historic, the Library of Congress has unveiled a new digital exhibit of Frances Benjamin Johnson’s photo collection of gardens and historic homes. The photographs are even hand-colored. Nice gardening inspiration!

The LoC also looks back at the roller skating craze of the early 1900s. I especially like the pearls-clutching article about the fatalities.

If you’re going to the London Olympics this summer, be warned that you’re not supposed to tweet photos of the events, apparently. (Um, good luck with that, Olympic police.)

Wired has a list of books every geek should read to his/her children, along with a supplementary list sent in by (presumably geeky) readers. (Both lists are available as one PDF here.)
