Most of these great items come from my Twitter feed or Facebook news feed. Follow me on Twitter and on Facebook for more fascinating videos, articles, essays and criticism.

By Daniel R. DePetris | The Editor :: The Diplomat | Jan. 5

2. The Weather Channel Is Now Branding Winter
By James Poniewozik | Tuned In :: Time | Jan. 4

9. Introducing the First Search Engine for Math And Science Equations
Smithsonian Magazine | December 2012
