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”:
It’s My Life is a “choose your own adventure” game from PBS. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
Nuking My House On Line (You Can, Too) is from NPR, and tells about a site where you can simulate the damage a nuclear bomb would cause anyplace in the world. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Nuclear Weapons.
America’s nuclear guinea pigs: Astonishing film that shows how Marines were used to test atomic weapons is from The Daily Mail. I’m adding it to the same list.
