Articles of Interest from Peter Squire

Peter Squire, a friend, occasionally sends me and a host of others a list of articles that he finds interesting. The list always contains some sites that I'd like to read further, come back to, and recommend to others. The list comes by email and I think it ought to be blogged. So without asking his permission, here is the list I received this morning from Peter Squire, with URLs converted to hyperlinks by me.
