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”:

Twitter’s Secret Handshake is a very interesting article in The New York Times about hashtags. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.

The Centers For Disease Control has a video, with closed-captioning, showing the history of HIV/AIDS from 1981 through 2008. I’m adding it to The Best Web Resources For Learning About HIV & AIDS.

The Art Of Yarn Bombing is a TIME Magazine slideshow. I’m adding it to The Best Examples Of “Unusual” Art.

Big Huge Labs is on a few other “The Best…” lists. It’s an easy site for users to create online content. They now have a special site for educators. Thanks to Paula Naugle for the tip.

Disability around the world: Key facts is an interactive from The Guardian.

Final Days of the Soviet Union is a slideshow from The Washington Post.

I’m adding two more resources to The Best Sites For Beginning iPhone Users Like Me. They are 25 Essential Apps for Travelers from TIME Magazine and TripLingo Teaches You Foreign Language Phrases You’ll Actually Need When Traveling.

Languages of Europe is an interesting color-coded map. I’m adding it to The Best “Language Maps.
