Too busy to blog

Late weekend update: More research links from last week:

Just a few things of note, and a few good research links. Hope I get back to more timely blogging soon, after work and holiday stuff gets done. You may have seen some of these but a couple are fun:
  • Dick Cheney's Google Searches (Vanity Fair).
  • Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year: "Truthiness".
  • Search Engine Land is now open.
  • Gabe Rivera's Rivers of News for his news sites Memeorandum, Techmeme, WeSmirch and Ballbug.

    The links:
  • Hurisearch, a human rights search engine from Huridocs, Human Rights Information and Documentation Systems, International.

  • Livestock Impacts on the Environment, new report from FAO documents the increasing effect of meat-eating. Download full report, Livestock's Long Shadow.

  • Swivel, data-sharing site.

    Public Records:
  • CanLII: Canada Legal Information Institute, directory of Canadian law sites and case law searches, national and provincial.
  • BRB's Public Records Blog
  • Google Patent Search

    Some interesting stories/blogs:
  • Johnny Apple's Lessons go beyond Journalism, lovely reminescense in the Oregonian from someone who worked for him.
  • If you badger, he will talk, thoughtful interview with Dan Lebatard in The Big Lead blog.
