An end-of-weekly roundup collecting fffffive of the fffffantabulous things I find stumbling around the web during the week here, but which I post on one of the many other Internet outlets I stop by (or tweet at) during my travels. More about the genesis here.

My friend, Adam, wrote a wonderful essay that rolls into one our changing world, our love of stories and the delicate web that connects us all through time and space. As I said in my re-post (because that’s whatcha do on Tumblr!), this kind of stuff is what the web is for, both in and of itself, and in a meta sense. [Tumbled]

Top photo find of the week month year: this edited stream from MSNBC. [delicious-ed, via daringfireball]

While in Ojai last weekend, I met one of the founders of this innovative project bringing power to remote, off-the-grid parts of Africa. John and his partner, Carl, are there right now, updating via MMS on their smartphones. I love the internet! [Stumbled]

At Success Team last week, my guitarist friend noted my eclectic taste in music. Note that “eclectic” does not necessarily mean “good.” [last.fm reveals my deepest, darkest musical secrets]

The catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf is depressing as hell, but this pool of suggested new logos for BP is pretty outstanding. [Flickr-faved, via kernspiracy]
