Friday Five: odds and sods, March 6, 2009

We’re getting ready for our annual St. Pat’s Week festivities here in Rolla, so that means light blogging ahead for the coming week. Hope these contextless links tide you over for a while.

1. Doodling: good for the brain. According to a new study, “doodlers actually remember more than nondoodlers when asked to retain tediously delivered information, like, say, during a boring meeting or a lecture” (via How blog).

2. Cloud computing: 10 questions answered, via HighEdWebTech.

3. Karlyn Morissette on the power of compliments.

4. Charlie Melichar on The ragged edge, where “messy can be strategic.”

5. For the music lovers: Thanks for sticking with me. Happy Friday.
