This came out a week ago, so chances are you’ve seen it already, but I couldn’t resist reposting it here! It’s so good:
It’s been 4 months since Emma Watson did her awesome He For She speech and it’s great to see this followup video about 10x10x10:
I really enjoyed this talk at Playful a couple months back by George Rowe and Dan Efergan about easter eggs in games:

This 6 minute clip showing the visualization and “audibilization” of sorting algorithms is so mesmerising (and a great way to grasp how sorting algorithms work):
The algorithms are: selection sort, insertion sort, quick sort, merge sort, heap sort, radix sort (LSD), radix sort (MSD), std::sort (intro sort), std::stable_sort (adaptive merge sort), shell sort, bubble sort, cocktail shaker sort, gnome sort, bitonic sort and 30 seconds of bogo sort.
Thanks to Matt for pointing this out to me!

I remember visiting the place on my first trip to London when I was 12/13 years old and discovering a ton of young adult fantasy and scifi books that seemed to be written specially for me. It’s sad to see that store closing, but thankfully they’re moving only a couple minutes down the road:
