*Social Media: Facebook is getting ready to offer “credits,” in what looks like a way to accumulate and put metrics around “Likes” or other positive feedback on statuses or other postings. That approach has worked well for Favrd, but obviously, many differences.
*Literature: “Barred for Life” is a book about band superfans; in this case, people who have gotten Black Flag tattoos. This may be obvious, but I’ve been contemplating getting a tattoo of a baby chicken wearing a party hat and carrying a small cane for almost two years now. [tds via poploser]
*Economy: It’s only April and more than 2 million jobs have been lost in America this year.
*Today’s links: D. Don’t be afraid to be hard on yourself.
