Happy 2012! We are 11 days in and things are picking up. Don’t know about y’all, but we’re halfway through the first week of the semester. Before that, I was off for two weeks (some vacationing, some conferencing at the Modern Language Association), so I’m in a random mood. With no further ado, here are the random links I’ve been reading so far this year:

Did you make resolutions this year? If so, Lifehacker explains the Science Behind New Year’s Resolutions while Mashable introduces us to Gympact, a new startup that incentivizes your exercise by making you pay when you skip the gym and rewarding you when you go. iMore (formerly TiPB) tells you how to resolve to review your social network privacy settings.

Apple announces an education event for next week. Rest assured that we will it covered here at SAWTT!

As I mentioned above, I was at a conference last week. One with a very lively Twitter backchannel. In the Chronicle of Higher Education, William Pannapacker argues for Twitter as scholarship.

Finally, here’s a link to a story that tells you something that we here already knew: women buy more tech than men.

What have y’all been reading over the break? Share your links in the comments!
