  1. Infographic: Buying a Winter Jacket

    Infographics are all the rage these days. What better way than to inform, show interesting facts, and make some pretty graphs in the process? The folks at Credit Donkey pointed me towards their guide to buying a winter jacket and I was surprised, it’s really well done. There’s everything from windchill to how various types…

  2. Denver thinks about 2022 winter Olympic games →

    From The Denver Exploratory Committee’s release:

    The opportunity to pursue the Games is an endeavor worth taking very seriously,” Hickenlooper said. “We’ve asked this exploratory committee to explore all issues relevant to Denver potentially submitting a bid to the USOC.
