Compendium of Links #49

The maker's schedule vs. the manager's schedule...
Most powerful people are on the manager's schedule. It's the schedule of command. But there's another way of using time that's common among people who make things, like programmers and writers.

A psychologist explains online dating. (Hey, I read The Atlantic. So what?) And in the psychologist's words: "It can expand the pool of potential partners, making available a whole slew of people who otherwise would have been unavailable. That’s a huge, huge benefit. But, at least thus far, it can’t figure out who’s compatible with you" That's exactly what I've suspected for quite some time.

How to teach math to your children: Use Legos.

 A collection of great maps: What each country leads the world in (USA: "Nobel laureates and getting killed by lawnmowers"), a real-time map of the wind in the USA and all the world's earthquakes since 1898 mapped.

And for your viewing pleasure: Set to part of "The Nutcracker."
Cute, isn't he?
