1.  An interesting project that uses the language of porn and sex work to tell the stories of the people involved in it  http://bit.ly/9neumC

2. Bacon and how it's made (surely there is a hidden magic step they aren't showing us here) http://bit.ly/aVnJ74

3. A very slick approach to map illustrations (of a city I love!) http://bit.ly/d1lWSS

4. The New York Public library has created a Mad Men reading list of the books mentioned, referenced or displayed in the show http://bit.ly/dwpsGZ

5. Aluminum foam has the potential to save many lives and is just really pretty cool http://bit.ly/cRf23D
