Another week another collection of posts! Please contain your enthusiasm :).
I thought I would start posting each Sunday the summary of the week's posts in Tabbloid format. As you might recall from an earlier post, Tabbloid is a free service that lets you create a custom PDF format 'newspaper' from your selected blogs and other sites RSS feeds, and have that newspaper delivered via email on whatever schedule you choose.
Here is this week's collection of posts, in handy PDF format - Steve's Blog : May 24-30, 2010.
I hope making content accessible in this way is a help to someone out there, I will continue to post these collections on Sundays for the time being. I hope that if you find them useful, or actually download the PDF and give/send it to someone that otherwise would have never seen these posts, you would take a second and let me know in the comments.
This is one way to try to break out of the echo chamber, but it is certainly not the only way, and if you have other and better thoughts on how to do this, I would love to hear them.
Some other highlights from all the great posts and articles I read this week that I recommend:
