Academic Earth - the colour of the internet - Ben Tour - a long aquaduct - bear love

Academic Earth
Possibly the best site of the year: thousands of free video lectures from the world’s top scholars. Ever wanted to study linear algebra at MIT? ‘The American novel since 1945’ at Yale? Now you can!

The colour of the internet
See the answer to the question: ‘What colour is the internet’.

Ben Tour
Check out the work of Ben Tour, a Vancouver-based painter and illustrator who has forged a successful career translating his fascination with human behaviour into beautifully dense character portraits. Courtesy of NotCot.

A long aquaduct
See images of the ancient world’s longest underground aqueduct in Der Spiegel.

Bear love
A fun illustrated list of ‘things bears love’ (includes: overweight hikers, roller-coaster photos and boomboxes).
