The Best Infographics Of 2012 — So Far I usually just do a year-end list of The Best Infographics and many other topics, but it gets a little crazy having to review all of my zillion posts at once. So, to make it easier for me — and perhaps, to make it a little more useful to readers — I’m going to start publishing mid-year lists, too. These won’t be ranked, unlike my year-end “The Best…” lists, and just because a site appears on a mid-year list doesn’t guarantee it will be included in an end-of-the-year one. But, at least, I won’t have to review all my year’s posts in December… How to Create a Bibliography in Google Documents As I do every year, I am taking this week to relax, recharge, and ski with friends.
