Wow! That's stunning
Twitter users shocked to learn that the Titanic disaster actually happened.

You can feel the dumb.

It is a pretty cool fact!
The Most Astounding Fact about the Universe - Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, "What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?" This is his answer.

For those who want to know but don't know yet.... and for those of us who are lucky enough to already know what it feels like...

I love this formula!!!

"Knowledge is Power Time is Money and as every engineer knows, Power is Work over Time.

So, substituting algebraic equations for these time worn bits of wisdom, we get:

K = P T = M P = W/T

... Solving for Money, we get:

M = W/K

Money equals Work Over Knowledge... we see that Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches 0, regardless of the Work done."

I couldn't help but be mischievous this week. With Google announcing it's new policy about sharing information between all of its apps to 'enhance' the user experience.. I decided to have some fun with that. I deliberately signed into my G+ account at work, so they would get all my browsing history. As a librarian, I spend about 6 hours a day searching for information online... and I've just let them have months of search history.

Good luck targeting ads or search results for me, Google! I'm interested to see what you come up with!

Just recently I've noticed more books about the "power of introversion" and that has struck me as odd as extraversion has always been more valued by those around me than introversion. I think that's a pretty common experience. Certainly we live in an overwhelmingly extraverted world -- the rise of the Internet and social networking sites is influencing us to value collaboration and team work more than ever before. Interesting to find this Susan Cain video about allowing space for introverts in our extraverted spaces: work, school, etc. It's a challenge to find space and acceptance for the needs of introverts with the 24/7 extraverted streams of our culture. Certainly interesting to think about as a supervisor at work when considering office design and work tasks.

Interesting new phone scam... friends in BC are getting calls like this:

Caller asked for my by name and confirming that I live where I live, and then “alerting” me that my computer security has been compromised, was “spewing personal information and corrupted files” into the internet and affecting their server, and I had been sent “multiple warnings.” The presentation was absolutely crafted to induce stress and anxiety. All designed to sell me a computer security software system. URGH!!

-- so far a few friends have come up with creative responses. One declared he didn't own a computer. Another said that the police are monitoring all her incoming calls because of a stalker. If you get one of these calls, I suggest having some fun of your own -- the person on the other end of the line really deserves it.
