13 Texts From Last Week You Gotta Know Of

I’ve found a bunch of good reads this week and I’d love to share them with my colleagues. Topics range from journals practicing “cascading peer review”, how to hitch a ride with your mobile and environmental sustainability to hacking Commodores and the likelihood that someone could actually become Batman, given our sophistication in technology.

I’ve embedded tweets (yes, embedded, no screendumps) using a tool called Blackbird Pie. You can find out how to do this yourself on “How to embed a Tweet” (maybe something for you Susan?). This makes it easy to see from who/what the information comes from. Enjoy!
