Five for Friday Pt. 45-Guest Blogger Edition

Hi everybody, I'm beat from a work trip earlier this week so I'm letting my friend Emily take the reigns today. She is a sexy scientist, tech-nerd and DIY queen who is only rivaled by me in terms of time spent on the internet. Thanks Em! 1) Science: As someone who works in a research science field, news coverage of scientific papers always drives me crazy. The Lay Scientist sums up news agencies' approach to covering science quite well.

2) Tech: MakeUseOf.com is my go-to tech website. They have lots of great information on how to use what you already have on your computer/smart phone and great recommendations for new, usually free, services online. Anytime I'm trying to figure out how to do something, this is the first place I look. A recent find from Makeusof is Wordle where I made this fun iconograph using notoriousmle.com. (PS-From Lat Notoriousa. I looove Wordle. I urge you guys to head over them and waste some time) Wordle: Notorious

3) Blogs: Blogging is hard work. For verification, check out Michael Arrington of Tech Crunch's story out on Inc.

4) Infographics: Who doesn't love a good infographic? Via visualeconomics.com and creditloan.com, a breakdown of what Americans spend their pay checks on. I love comparing my expenses to others and feeling smug. You can too! wheredidthemoneygo

5) Video: YouTube Time Machine allows you to enter any year and see random videos from that year. In honor of my birth year, check out what happened in 1980.
