Links to Learning

August 19, 2010

Sometimes I come across articles or commentaries that are thought-provoking, but I feel that I just don’t have anything meaningful to add to the topic. Believe it or not, some writers can recognize when their words aren’t needed.

Links might range from those about social media to blatant promotion of a friend’s work, or maybe mind-numbing scientific breakthroughs—because we should all work to be well rounded human beings, even if we don’t like the topic.
