- Chat Roulette — not sure it’s new, as I think I recall Eric Ries talking about implementing it in the early days of IMVU, but it’s still interesting: chat to a random person who also wants to chat.

- Only Surviving Photo of Phineas Gage Found on Flickr (NPR) — are we still surprised at this? It’s a little like “last copy of book found in library”. Great photo, though. (via wiselark on Twitter)
- The 2009 Feltron Report — life quantified beautifully. (via Flowing Data)
- Chart Wars: The Political Power of Visualization (Ignite) — how to be a smart consumer of datagraphics and visualizations. (via KathySierra on Twitter)
