I’ve seen a number of things in my web travels over the past few weeks that I’ve wanted to blog about but haven’t (mostly due to work projects), so I’m going to summarize instead of letting them languish in my feed reader. Here are some of the interesting things I’ve come across lately. Good chance I may comment more on them at a later time.
