1. How the Library of Congress is building the Twitter archive
By Audrey Watters | O’Reilly Radar | June 2
“In April 2010, Twitter announced it was donating its entire archive of public tweets to the Library of Congress. … That’s led to a flood of inquiries to the Library of Congress about how and when researchers will be able to gain access to the Twitter archive. These research requests were perhaps heightened by some of the changes that Twitter has made to its API and firehose access. But creating a Twitter archive is a major undertaking for the Library of Congress, and the process isn’t as simple as merely cracking open a file for researchers to peruse.”

2. The Mind after Midnight: Where Do You Go When You Go to Sleep?
Scientific American | June 3
“Based on new sleep research, there are tantalizing signposts. Join us in exploring this slumbering journey. We’ll delve into the one-eyed, half-brained sleep of some animals; eavesdrop on dreams to understand their cognitive significance; and investigate extreme and bizarre sleeping behaviors like “sleep sex” and “sleep violence.’ ”

3. Roman Ship Carried Live Fish Tank
By Rossella Lorenzi | Discovery News | June 3
“The ancient Romans might have traded live fish across the Mediterranean Sea by endowing their ships with an ingenious hydraulic system, a new investigation into a second century A.D. wreck suggests.”

4. Peruvians facing worst possible choices
By Andres Oppenheimer | The Miami Herald | June 3
“It’s hard to tell which of the presidential candidates running in Peru’s runoff elections Sunday — right-of-center Keiko Fujimori and left-of-center Ollanta Humana — would be worse for their country’s democratic institutions. Both have strong authoritarian backgrounds.”

5. Remembering the Civil War
To the Best of Our Knowledge | Feb. 20
“It’s the sesquicentennial of the Civil War — it’s been 150 years since that epic war began. Americans will commemorate and remember it from different points of view. … We’ll talk about soldiers’ experiences on the battlefield, and their reconciliation afterwards. We’ll debate the controversial legacy of the abolitionist, John Brown. And we’ll reflect on why the Civil War still has a living — and highly contested — history … even today.”
