John Mcphee, polymathic writer

This may be my favorite MetaFilter post of all time. It’s titled, simply, “John McPhee.”

Ducks and the Galaxy

My two favorite videos today, delivered without comment (and via MetaFilter):

Cataloguing History

Three photography links from The Guardian (All via MetaFilter):

– A history of Guardian photography. Only 15 photos to cover 100 years? Let’s pick up the pace.

– Ditto on this slideshow of acclaimed Guardian photographer Don McPhee – ditto on the complain, though it’s picks up in the second half. Note on both these how much more enjoyable the slideshows are with two narrators bouncing off each other.

– And a cool story about a photograph.
