A week in Tweets: 12-18 December 2010

Link: http://weblog.tomgraves.org/index.php/2010/12/19/tweetweek-12dec/

Finally catching up, though my cold is still such that I’m at risk of dripping into the keyboard – oh joys… :-( Still, I do promise to return to other (more useful?) posts shortly – there’s quite a backlog built up whilst I’ve been sort-of out of action. In the meantime, yes, another week’s-worth of Tweets and links.

The blob had turned into a surprisingly detailed map of the world. Not only were continents visible, certain international borders were apparent as well. What really struck me, though, was knowing that the lines didn’t represent coasts or rivers or political borders, but real human relationships. Each line might represent a friendship made while travelling, a family member abroad, or an old college friend pulled away by the various forces of life.” – fascinating…
