The Boston Globe did a really incredible Year in Pictures compilation of their best photos. See Part I and Part II. Personal favorites here, here, and here.

New trailer for Dark Knight Rises. Man, I can’t wait for this movie.

I recently posted about an idea I had, of selling video game items and upgrades for real money to benefit charity. A friend clued me in that Blizzard is already doing this with World of Warcraft. (Here’s one example.) Nice!

I just learned about Radio Free Europe, a news organization that reports on international issues (not just in Europe) without a lot of the pointless crap that chokes many mainstream news sites. Seems pretty good so far. Although it is funded by the U.S. Congress, so be prepared to watch for bias.

A remarkable photographic look inside North Korea. I find the first photo especially striking, though I can’t say exactly why.

And finally, SMBC Comics brings the funny, as it so often does.

Post your own links in the comments if you’ve got ’em.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
