I’ve reviving this regular feature that I used to post a few years ago….
I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in 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.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Olympic Games: The Forgotten Events is from Reuters. I’m adding it to A BEGINNING LIST TO LEARN ABOUT THE 2022 BEIJING WINTER OLYMPICS.
Where Should You Live? is a cool NY Times interactive.
How ‘Good’ Social Movements Can Triumph over ‘Bad’ Ones is from Scientific American. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On Building Influence & Creating Change.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Resources On Different Types Of Map Projections:
