Tech Column: The Party's Over, Now What?

by Bill Adler

The presents are all unwrapped. The batteries have run down. The book you received is finished, and you're pretty sure you've seen all the holiday TV specials before.

Now what?

To help fill in the gap time between when the holiday festivities end and you get back to the wonderful world of work, I've put together a short list of fun photo websites. Enjoy, with or without eggnog.

TwistedSifter: Really, really eye-opening photographs: www.twistedsifter.com. Be sure not to miss this city view: www.twistedsifter.com/2012/12/crane-operators-view-at-night-rooftopping.

Thinking of your next vacation? Are you in the mood for a big city? A pastoral countryside? A cultural experience or eating adventure? There are so many possibilities, so instead of listing where to go, I thought I'd share a list of where not to go. Park your car and take a look at the most dangerous roads in the world:  www.darkroastedblend.com/2006/11/most-dangerous-roads-in-world.html.

You won't be disappointed by these best astronomy photos of 2012 from Slate: http://slate.me/WKQ7ar. Or by these best animal photos from 2012: www.flickr.com/photos/dd-photography/8290276337.

Because it's that time of the year, here's a gallery of fun and unusual snow globes: http://bit.ly/VuMkqF. Enjoy!
