Front pages of newspapers from today from www.newseum.org — this is a great read on the history of today. (Thanks Will Richardson for the link.)
Tom HOffman shares some of the background story of fivethirtyeight.com – a great story of collaboration and work and how “no names” become somebody with hard work, intelligence, persistence, and a commitment to “do it right” sans an agenda.
This website had a TON of hits this past month — in the millions — 3 people and some spreadsheets did this. (See Tom Hoffman’s post for more on it.) I think this is something that the students of the Flat Classroom Project will need to integrate into their work.
Probloggers 31 days to building a better blog — many in education are taking this challenge issued by Steve Dembo. Some great tips.

OK, so you want to figure out what that song is? Download Tunatic and play the song and it will recognize it. This is so cool!!! Search engines aren’t just for text any more. This is very useful.
I love Rhondda’s reflections on digital citizenship. She makes very profound, reasonable arguments as a teacher in the trenches and she has my vote 100% on what she’s saying!!
Nice article reflecting upon the cloud computing movement.
Great website about digital media ethics and royalty free resources.
