Love these new 3D GIFs.  There's a great collection of them here: http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/3d-gifs 

What other innovations in internet images and video are worth checking out?

December 20th should be internationally recognized as "Bring your Alpaca hat to work day".  It is celebrated as such at wikiHow.

Cool Google Glass moment: I was walking near the 1, 070 year old El Palo tree, when Glass popped up this photo of what the tree looked like in the 1870s when it still had two trunks.  History geek meets augmented reality. Delight!

The size of the zucchinis we are pulling out of the wikiHaus garden is starting to freak us out a little.

Here’s my annual list of my books I enjoyed last year.  I read 33 books last year and have ranked them here.   What was your favorite book you read in 2013?

Huge congrats to +Cory Booker!  I think I saw this one coming. Cory lived in my hall in our freshman dorm at Stanford. Our nickname for him back then: "Senator Booker".

Here's the first wikiHow article I've photographed using Google Glass. It was much easier to do this using Glass than it would have been otherwise.

Flight Attendant: Can I try your Google Glass?
Me: Sure, but you just announced I had to turn off all electronics during our landing.
Flight Attendant: Go ahead and turn it back on.  It really won't hurt anything. I really want to try it!
