- The beesness of honey – Kenya is the fourth largest producer of honey in Africa 22,000 tons, China is the worlds largest producer at 299,000 tons (USA produces 70,000 tons) (figures for 2005). Kenya is a world center of bee diversity with over 3,000 species (about 10% of the worlds total number of species)
- Kindle for iPhone and iPod touch — The wonder is not that it's not as readable, but that it's readable at all – makes me wonder why anyone would buy a Kindle?
- Mark Plotkin Gets Into It With Robert Gibbs – At least there is one journalist asking questions about DC's colonial status to someone in the Obama administration. Well done.
- #19469 – Chinese Zodiac Animals Formed With World Map ~… – Pretty interesting use of country outlines to make shapes of animals. I only wish there were higher resolutions available so one can tell which countries are being used.
- NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council): Global Warming-Hot Cup & Sleeve – coffee cup maps
