Articles I noticed

As I’m intrigued by articles and sites, I’ll post them here.  Posting an article or site link on this page does not mean that I agree with the article or site or endorse them in any way, so please don’t hold me (or my employer) to their opinions or content.  

Expect this list of articles to be sporadically and randomly updated with no specific context besides simply that I found it interesting. Check my Twitter account at @blueshirtjohn and my Facebook page and my LinkedIn page for other article links.
