This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”

| 0 comments

I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.

Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:

As Income Gap Balloons, Is It Holding Back Growth? is from NPR. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.

Visual Bee is a plug-in for creating PowerPoint presentations. It seems to automatically make them snazzier. In some ways it reminds me of how changing themes in this blog works — you type in the basic info, and then you can try out how it looks in a zillion different themes and then choose one. I’m adding it to The Best Sources Of Advice For Making Good Presentations. Thanks to Vicki Davis for the tip.

Cybrary Man has a great page of information about how to participate in a chat on Twitter. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.

Magnificent & Weird Trees is a photo gallery on just what it says. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Trees.

From Gagarin to the space shuttle: A history of human spaceflight – interactive is from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Planets & Space.

Your Bill of Rights is an impressive feature from TIME Magazine. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For “Bill Of Rights Day.

Workshop Genius lets you easily create “Sentence Scrambles,” among other things. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Creating Sentence Scrambles.

Richard Byrne has created a bunch of useful tutorials on how to use various Google tools. I’m adding them to The Best Places To Learn Web 2.0 Basics.

A Few Rules for Making Homemade Infographics comes from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Creating Infographics.
