A better curriculum by Tyler Feder

It’s surprising how hard we’ll work when the work is done just for ourselves. And with all due respect to John Stuart Mill, maybe utilitarianism is overrated. If I’ve learned one thing from being a cartoonist, it’s how important playing is to creativity and happiness.
Wise words from Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson, born on July 5, 1958. (via explore-blog)

You can sleep well tonight: There are more public libraries (about 17,000) in America than outposts of McDonalds (about 14,000). The same is true of Starbucks (about 11,000 coffee shops nationally).

The top map (blue) represents libraries; the bottom (red) represents America’s 35,000 museums. includes zoos, arboretums, historical societies, art galleries, aquariums and just about anything trying to teach people about a collection of… something.

Libraries and museums are both so thoroughly, densely spread across the landscape that you could remove the physical boundaries of the United States from a map and still recognize the country by the geography of the places where we go to borrow books and learn about the universe.
