If you follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen these items of interest encountered recently in my feed-reader or via twitter (please consider following some of the bloggers/tweeters). What did I miss? (I missed a lot this week – very busy with family stuff) Leave your own interesting links or pithy observations in comments. Shameless self-promotion entirely welcome!
