Geeky & Cool: Periodic Table of Comic Books

Created by a couple of chemistry professors at the University of Kentucky.  Lots of fun, delightfully geeky and an excellent example of Fair Use. Thanks to Marie Slim from the Troy High School Library for sharing on Twitter.

Fun avatar generators

Cool slideshow with fun avatar generators:

I am a sucker for avatar generators. I had a *really* good time using the Otaku avatar generator to make the little characters in the Information Literacy game. I also like using them for representational purposes online (as evidenced by my profile picture). Maybe if I photographed better I wouldn't enjoy playing with them as much as I do, but thank goodness that I have found a number of good ones that I can use to create more charming and attractive versions of myself.
