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”:
Mandela: An Audio Timeline is from Radio Diaries. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Nelson Mandela.
Brilliant breakfast: Pancake artist recreates famous paintings, 3D animals and replicas of food with pancake batter and syrup is from The Daily Mail. I’m adding it to The Best Examples Of “Unusual” Art.
Candidate Match Game II is an interactive from USA Today. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The 2012 U.S. Presidential Election.
Vote 2012 is a neat interactive map from the PBS News Hour. I’m adding it to the same list.
Hate Small Talk? These 5 Questions Will Help You Work Any Room is from Fast Company.
How to Get — and Keep — Someone’s Attention is from Annie Murphy Paul. I’m adding it to The Best Sources Of Advice For Making Good Presentations.
