Weekend Link Love – 11.21.2010

Not too much to report on this week. Here are some great things I read in the last seven days:

And here are some useful sites that are not new to this past week, but I want to share anyway:

  • Khan Academy. A former hedge fund analyst started making videos on various science and math-y topics to tutor his cousins remotely. Turns out that he’s quite good at taking complicated subjects and explaining them via YouTube. He has videos on everything from Harmonic Motion (physics) to Organic Chemistry to basic Math and more.
  • Cal Newport’s Blog, Study Hacks. He’s the author of 3 books, How to Be a High School Superstar, How to Become a Straight-A Student, and How to Win at College. He has great tips for non-students, too.
  • Joshua Bell plays violin in a metro station. No one notices. This says something about our ability to appreciate beauty in unexpected places.

Think that’s it! Come back for Healthy Monday tomorrow. I haven’t decided what I am posting about yet.
