Link Collection #2
This free 30-minute documentary presented by The New York Times is fantastic. The rare footage from the Apollo missions is fascinating, and the emotional testimony of the Apollo 8 crew is both touching and inspiring.
Save this one for the next time you cuddle on the couch with your favorite person.
This seems like a nice backpack, but that’s not why I’m linking to it. This backpack is featured here because it’s made out of a new fabric called Bananatex, which is made of banana plants.
Next to our own high density organic cotton canvas most of our products are made of, we have just released Bananatex®, a new shell fabric made from the fibers of banana plants.

HazeOver is a useful utility for Macs that automatically dims all but the foreground window, making it easy to focus on the task at hand while still keeping everything else visible and accessible. Nice little intro video, too.
This paper airplane database has everything: detailed folding instructions with pictures and video, printable templates, and details about flight characteristics. All the planes are nicely organized by type and difficulty, making this a great link for people of all ages.
Here’s how Doodle Addicts describes itself:
Doodle Addicts is a new platform dedicated to celebrating the addiction—our incessant need to draw, sketch, and doodle with anything and everything we can get our hands on. Whether it be in a sketchbook, on a napkin, with your stylus and tablet, or on a giant wall, artists of all types are welcome here. Our growing community is a place for like-minded creatives to share and inspire one another through their portfolio of artwork, quirky drawing challenges and insightful interaction.
It’s always nice to find a refreshing and fun online community with a great focus.
