Here is this week’s list of blog posts, photographs and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
The 45 Most Powerful Images of 2012. A worldwide 2012 digital photo album. Some pictures are inappropriate for younger or sensitive readers.
Average Life Satisfaction Score By Age. 50+ readers, how accurate is this chart in your experience?
Eyewire. So apparently this game helps to map neurons. Knowing more about where and how neurons are connected will give the neuroscientists who created it a better idea of how human neural systems work.
