Links of Interest for Weeks of December 18th – 31st

Last week I was unable to post my customary “Links of Interest” post to IHEC Blog due to me and my youngest child being sick and the fact that it was Christmas. For this post of 2010 I pulled some links from Twitter (most of the links below are items I posted to Twitter) from the past two weeks. I hope you find some of the links to be of interest and/or helpful to your research or work.
