Fun for Friday

Happy Friday, dear readers! I had a plan to write a post on connection and its importance in library work today, but then the week got away from me and I was rather upset by the Net Neutrality ruling and didn’t finish up my post. So hopefully that will come next week. But today, especially since we are heading into a long weekend, I thought I’d just share some fun stuff and articles that have been hanging around in my saved feeds because I couldn’t find a coherent way to make them all work together. So let’s get into it.

This short article and link is a good reminder that to surround yourself with positive coworkers. Calmness and positive attitudes are contagious just like anxiety and negative attitudes.

I am rather fond of maps, whether they are old maps in archives and special collections or new maps created like infographics. So it is no surprise that I’m fond of this map of the world if every country’s population matched its physical size and this map of the world’s most and least populous places. Very cool.

And finally, I’m rather fond of this: 100 famous movie quotes as charts. Hope you enjoy it, too.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll be back next week with more. Allons-y!
