A nosegay of miscellaneous new stuff...

New for me anyway...
A Free Technology for Teachers - jam-packed with useful stuff for teachers and others.

Techfuga - all the top tech news aggregated in one clean page. Read this - in addition to your regular scanning of the Knowbodies LibTech Metagator - and you will be respected and relied-upon.

Phrontistery - Gadzooks, what a trove this is! Its owner says: "Since 1996, I have compiled word lists in order to spread the joy of the English language. Here, you will find the International House of Logorrhea (an online dictionary of obscure and rare words), the Compendium of Lost Words (a compilation of ultra-rare forgotten words), and many other glossaries, word lists, essays, and other language and etymology resources." If you're wondering whether there are lists of rare three letter words, or unusual animals (320 of them), the answer is yes and yes. The latter also includes that carnivorous mouselike Australian marsupial the antechinus.
