Pin the Tale

"Mapping Emotions in Victorian London" ranks near the top of recent internet finds.  This project is a child of the Stanford Literary Lab and used crowd-sourcing to give emotional context to varied passages citing London places.

Books + data + visualization = you could lose yourself for hours (well, not technically, since there's a map...but I think you get my point).

Mighty Pen

Preparation for the Next Life by Atticus Lish made a number of the "Best of 2014" lists but I've only discovered it this morning via a news peruse as Mr. Lish has just won the 2015 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.  The Guardian has a nice write-up as well for this debut novel.  It looks like a good title for your summer reading list.

Sky in Spring

Before sunrise, glimpse of lunar eclipse.
Post sunset, a long look at the ISS.

Hope you got to enjoy your space this Saturday.
