Last night I was online working and took the usual path of distraction (or is it procrastination) of checking in with Facebook, TweetDeck, and Google Buzz. After a satisfactory dive into my social world, I continued my divergence from the task at hand and dove into my (much neglected) Google Reader. I remember the days when I would diligently read down to (0), you know– that notation that indicates the number of unread items in your RSS feed? These days it looks more like this– (1000+). Recognize that anyone? I started to organize feeds, clicking on favorite blogs, reading, following links, watching videos and felt that warm comfy feeling of being lost in the web. It isn’t a fearful lost, one that causes anxiety or angst, just a wonderful calm, peaceful lost, almost reminiscent of getting lost in a good book (although I won’t equate those the two experiences here…I said ALMOST). I love the nuggets of information, the connections between concepts and the incredibly creative people I run across on the web. Today, I share with you some of my treasures!

This landed in my reader and then later in the day I saw it again on Twitter. It is just plain fun. (and a great example of what kids can do!)
