From Arizona Geology (love that blog!): new Arizona sites map online. “The popular ACERT map (Arizona Council for Enhancing Recreation & Tourism) is now online as an interactive map with over 425 locations and more being added.”

New words in the Oxford Dictionary. Took soul patch long enough.

Wow: famous musician finds out what happened to his father — via his own Wikipedia page.

Dropbox, now in yummy double auth flavor.

New historical photo goodies from Oregon Health & Science University.

From ZDNet: the five most popular Linux distributions. HINT: Ubuntu is not #1 (or #2!)

I can see this as coming in very handy — especially if you have a lot of images to handle: a tool to auto-crop in bulk.

Hat Tip to Laughing Squid for the pointer to the Candy Wrapper Archive. Over 600 wrappers! Good afternoon, Internet…
