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”:
What Is Higgs Boson? is a pretty good infographic. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Higgs Boson, The “God Particle.”
Google+ Expands ’On Air’ Hangouts is from TechCrunch. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning What Google+ Is All About.
Alexander Graham Bell: Early recordings played is a neat interactive from The Associated Press. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Learn About Inventions.
US-Mexico immigration: Even oceans have borders is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Walls That Separate Us.
Predicting the Future of Computing is a really neat New York Times timeline. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The History Of Technology.
Ten tech items you won’t be needing anymore is a slideshow from The Los Angeles Times. I’m adding it to the same list.
Tech Has Saved the Postal Service for 200 Years—Today, It Won’t is an intriguing slideshow. I’m adding it, too, to that same list.
Inconvenient Income Inequality is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.
On fairy tales about inequality is from The Economic Policy Institute. I’m adding it to the same list.
