  1. odyssey.js — storytelling tool to assemble interactive stories from narrative, pictures, maps.

  3. 8-Bit Philosophy — learn philosophy with an 8-bit aesthetic. (via EdSurge)
  4. Sensors and Citizens: Finding Balance in the New Urban Reality (Frog Design) — as the sensor systems themselves become capable of autonomous data collection and information creation, we will begin to encounter closed-loop spatial sensing networks capable not only of taking instructions, but also of taking action. When that happens, nearly every industry and government imaginableā€”and your daily lifeā€”will be deeply affected. This is exciting, scary, and inevitable.
