  • A quote by Maya Angelou defining ‘success’ in a clear and personally achievable way;
  • an article explaining why writing your e-mail’s conclusion first will get you more favorable responses;
  • an article about an FCC ruling that allows cable companies to scramble or encrypt local HDTV and network broadcasts. The ruling, which takes effect on April 10, 2013, means you’ll need a cable company-provided set-top box to watch HDTV broadcasts;
  • an infographic describing what 3D printing is, how it could forever change lives, and why big business might not want you anywhere near a 3D printer;
  • an article about North American culture and its weird effects on the way North Americans relate to self, other inhabitants of the planet, and the environment;
  • an article with pointers on how to rekindle self-confidence…naturally;
  • and, @nycework’s previous tweet digest with an article about a 2011 environmental study that found toxic water supplies in 43 US states…and more.
