Introducing “Worth a Click”

By Directions Staff

The Worth a Click section of Directions Magazine has been around for a few months, but it's time to formally introduce it to you, our readers. Worth a Click (WAC) is a place where our editors share curated content from other sites that we think is indeed worth a click. Source publications to date include The New York Times, Dr. Dobbs Journal, ReadWriteWeb and Tech Review, among others. Topics range from NoSQL to augmented reality to cloud computing.

We highlight one WAC each day in our newsletter, but with 10 or more articles added a week, that’s just a sample. You can access all the WAC content via its Web page, RSS feed or dedicated Twitter account. And, of course, we welcome your suggestions for WACs via .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
