Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:
1. I was really moved by this essay by Cristina Alger in the New York Times in which she remembers visiting her father’s office as a child.
2. I also loved the history of key design on Slate.
4. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you hit an egg with a baseball bat or explode a birthday cake, you’ll want to watch these video highlights from the Danish TV show Dumt & Farligt. (Hat tip: Very Short List)
6. And if you want to smile, read today’s interview with the Bloggess on The Happiness Project.
