Interesting Internet Finds – WE February 20, 2015

I publish Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program  with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors.

Computers, Technology, and User Groups Blog Interesting Internet Finds Word Cloud

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you. Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.
