Morning Toolbox – October 26, 2012 – CSICON continues

Morning Toolbox is a daily digest of interesting tools and techniques that skeptics can use online.

I’m at CSICON this weekend, so this post is small and late again. Normal pace will resume on Monday.

Google Instant is that feature where it will suggest popular searches as you start to type in the search box. It appears they are now pulling this info not just from searches but from the content of web pages too. I wonder what skeptic content is getting pulled in here? Have you seen any?

PBS Frontline has posted its program on climate change denial online.

Rebecca Rosen has an interesting piece at Atlantic about how Wikipedia is nearing ‘completion’ and that actually poses a problem for it.

ReadWrite suggests that a good place to go for political fact checking is your local librarian.

Don’t forget you can vote in the Stitcher Podcast Awards once per day, give your favorite podcasts some love.

Another short toolbox, have a good weekend!
