Background article on color and how it is used. Has a good graphic on colors and logos. Has some of the info used in the Pantone Book of Color.

The background on Baret's Alvearie which may have been used as a source for words by Shakespeare. It may be the copy he actually used and annotated. The complete book has been digitized and accessible off the web site.

Article about a dictionary published in 1580 that Shakespeare may have personally used. It is heavily annotated and scholars will be able to examine it in the near future. Even if it did not belong to Shakespeare, it seems likely that he used it as a source.

Another listing of web sites that were vulnerable to Heartbleed as of April 7, 2014. Not updated but gives you a sense of what might have been open if you have an account on those sites.

12 Apr 14

An online checker to see if a site is likely to have the heartbleed bug.

List of sites with those marked where you should change your password. It will be interesting to see what the situation is in a month or two.

An article by Steven Aquino. Although it is about the innovation issue with regards to Apple, he brings up a lot of stuff related to accessibility that is worth a read. Probably not usable with my students but a starting place for me.

Article detailing the strange case of a major type company lawsuit. Dramatic. But the fonts in dispute are widely used and worth lots of money.

Excellent article on solving battery drain problems in iOS. Written by someone who worked at a Genius Bar. Confirms info I've heard from other sources but lists them all in one place.

Article about Amazon primarily focused on the book side of the business both physical and ebooks. Provides a bit of a history. May be a bit one-sided. One wonders about publishers--if a significant amount of their profits come from textbooks and textbooks are moving to ebooks or no books, how will they support new writers?

About a 4-minute video on how Bill Nye became the Science Guy. Good background info.

A site where teacher submit "walks" that allow students to go on virtual tours using Google Earth. Along the way they find information, engage with questions and apply what they have learned. Categorized for Math, Science and Social Studies. Quality seems to vary.

Math activities for Google Earth. Variety of grade levels. Has some for SketchUp. Mostly 4th-12th grade.

State of broadband access for everyone in the U.S. is not too bright according to Newsweek. Politics, business and money may not be the best combination for getting access to everyone. How does this affect small town America? People living on farms and ranches? The economy of largely rural states and counties?

Screen shots of fairly big web sites circa 1995-1998. Interesting to see how the web has evolved in a relatively short time.

Interesting piece on the contrasting views and definitions of bit rot by archivists and librarians. The latter part goes into some of the complexity of the issue around ebooks with expiring files and limited number of checkouts for libraries.
