3 great reads for this week

Catching up this weekend with news and information in Inoreader, my RSS reader of choice on every device I use, I selected a good dozen or so stories to blog about when time permits. They all join a long list of in-draft posts that, by the time I really do get moments to complete and publish them, the attention opportunities will probably be long past.

And so little time to comment on them today other than in passing.

So here are five stories for Friday, each with a link to the full content on the originating website. Enjoy. 50,000 Websites Have Already Integrated Facebook’s New Social Plugins There’s no question that Facebook’s new social plugins […]

Stories for starting the weekend

When I’m desk bound early in the mornings, my habit is tea with RSS. Today is no exception, and a quiet perusal through my 100 or so subscriptions in FeedDemon produced quite a few gems, all of which I share in my link blog.
