>Link Roundup – November 30th, 2009

>Here are my picks from the last two weeks, while I’ve been busy with other things. I’ve skimmed all of the articles below, and will probably have to return to read a few more closely, but each of them seemed interesting.

I’ve filtered out more than usual, simply because of the sheer number of links that collected in my in-box. (194 tweets, to be exact.) However, that also gave me an interesting opportunity to gather some statistics. For each link, I’ve given the twitter name of the person from whom I first saw the content. Since most of the tweets pop up in my box 2-3 times from different people, the list below is pretty much the list of people generating original content, or who are fastest at getting the content into twitter. Thus, it’s kinda neat to see who’s shaping the twitter conversations I follow.
