Looking at Pictures/Images/Charts
The Big Picture (http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/): Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, three picture editors at The Boston Globe add a new set of stunning photos to their blog.

Information Is Beautiful Awards (http://www.informationisbeautifulawards.com/): These global awards are for "excellence in data visualization and information design." You know what that means --- lots of lovely, lovely charts. Mmmm.

Sociological Images (http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/): More charts! These sociological finds are sometimes startling, occasionally hilarious, not infrequently depressing, and always fascinating.

Commenting on My Friends' Blogs
Day Zero Countdown (http://dayzerocountdown.wordpress.com/): I would say things like, "Flash mob!" and "Flippah!"
Let's Eat Grandpa (http://letseatgrandpa.com/): I would say things like, "Maybe instead of doing that intensive physical trial you should just sleep in? Sleep is nice."
Metropotamia (http://metropotamia.org/): OK, commenting on Tumblr is weird. But I really liked that Stanley Tucci call-out and the PSA about a turtle.
