My personally selected top 10 from the links I shared on Twitter from 4/2/2010 thru 4/8/2010
1. Why I won’t buy an iPad (and think you shouldn’t, either) via RT @danielpink RT @calreid: Dude, you’re killing the buzz! RT @BoingBoing – No matter how you feel about or what you think about the iPad you should read this. There are some good points and some interesting points. As a personal note I think the iPad is a game changer despite agreeing with everything Doctorow says. Its easy to use, really easy and people are willing to spend money and be locked down and give up freedom for easy. Lets face it most non-techies don’t even consider those things. And yes, I want one, I didn’t until I actually got to play with one last week.
2. Spring cleaning! – Keep Your Financial Records No Longer Than You Must – I’m a big fan of less clutter! Plus getting rid of things you don’t need helps you find the important things when you need them.
3. 100 Simple, Low-Cost Ways to Be More Creative on the Job – I think the title says it all 🙂
4. maybe I’ll do an experiment & find out. After CiL of course 🙂 How long would you last ‘disconnected’? – this documentary released in 2008 follows three students who try to spend a month without using a computer
5. How we’ll get a gigabit to US hospitals, libraries, colleges – while I’m not thrilled about broadband access in hospitals being lumped together (really?) in the FCC’s National Broadband Plan, this is an interesting look at how we’ll get from here to there
6 . Wireless Net Neutrality: Dead? – if you don’t know about this you need to!
On April 6, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said the Federal Communications Commission couldn’t tell the U.S.’s largest cable company, Comcast, not to interfere with certain types of traffic. This in effect reverses the FCC’s 2008 ruling, which allowed Web services like Web-calling provider Skype to run over most wired networks, and to grow and prosper faster.

re: 5) I think the hospitals are added in because the Obama Administration is making a priority of moving medical records to digital formats and broadband access to hospitals would expedite this.
I think you’re right. I just don’t understand why hospitals and libraries are lumped together.
