As always, many props to places like Ypulse, Virtual World News,, and the New York Times/LA Times technology pages.  Not to mention my Netvibes (oh, shush, you google reader folks, hahaha), and all the blog resources linked above (and, of course, to John Cleese, for simply existing).

I have each article tabbed on my browser for rambling, but as always, get far too swept up in my day.

Many apologies.  Hope you find something in there that works for you!
