Other Ten Percent 5/9/12

May 09 2012

Writing this one up relatively early today which makes me think that maybe things are going to be genuinely productive today. Of course what the heck do I know? Oh wait, I know that there are all these links on the internet that you guys might be interested in. Woooo the internet.

The HOOD Internet…I apologize for that transition. I’m just excited that there’s a new Hood Internet mixtape and I love it by like the 10 second mark. Seriously. May be their strongest one yet though there are still odd missteps like the Kanye one where they do a bit that not only isn’t very effective but that Kanye already did himself.

Think about that for a second.

Wordless Web
Forget the Verge project where somebody goes without the internet for a year. I want to spend a year with this thing running in my browser.

The Ph.D. Now Comes With Food Stamps
Today in the crazy go nuts collapse of higher education.

Not going to lie, I think the target audience for this BLDGBlog post is like me, Haim and MAYBE Suzan. Still it’s my favorite thing that they’ve posted in the past six months because it’s just such a crazy specific concept.

Webcomics Roundup
XKCD Was good you guys. It was good and a Gilbert and Sullivan parody.
