The Top 10 Posts from the 1st Year of Q Source’s Social Rewind Column

We created our weekly Social Rewind column to share some of the most interesting, informative, and fun social media posts we come across each week. Social Rewind recently passed its one-year anniversary and we thought we’d look back and choose our ten favorite posts of that period.

Our criteria for choosing our favorites were that we wouldn’t pick the same source more than once, we wouldn’t pick a post that was about something timely like a holiday or event, and most of all, they had to be posts that made us think, smile, or laugh. So, in no particular order, here are our Top Ten Social Rewind Posts of the Past Year:

Wireless technology. Intrigue. Murder! EE Times’ post about Guglielmo Marconi and the telegraph is a must-read (10/14/13).

They say that adults are just children with bigger toys. Laughing Squid’s post about a giant game of “Jenga” played by Caterpillar Excavators makes us believe it (4/21/14).

Did you know there’s an old Cold War nuclear missile silo under downtown Seattle? Check out this post shared by Laboratory Equipment magazine for the secret details (4/7/14).

We’re not sure whether to be in awe of this, or just utterly creeped out. Check out Mashable’s post about a 3D-printed replica of Vincent van Gogh’s ear based on DNA from a distant relative of the great artist (6/9/14).

Conductive Containers gave us a huge chuckle with this post. Way to make scientists cool and hip (7/21/14).

Workrite Ergonomics tweeted a Fast Company piece about 10 breakthroughs that will impact the world in 2025. We’re still waiting for flying cars…see if they’re on this list (7/7/14).

An adult-sized Big Wheel. That’s all you have to know about this MAKE Magazine post (8/25/14).

Sure, you can 3D-print food, but how does it taste? According to this post by ThomasNet.com…it’s pretty good (6/2/14).

In this informative post, Agilent Technologies asks the question: “Who really invented the telephone?” (8/11/14)

Are you a “Nomophobic?” This PanaVise retweet of a post by Wilson Electronics offers a look at the fear of being without a mobile device (Nomophobia) (10/6/14).

Well, there you have it. Ten of our favorite posts from the first year of the Social Rewind column. Thank you for reading the weekly column and for contributing your comments and suggestions. We enjoy bringing you this fun and informative column every Monday.

The Social Rewind for November 24, 2014

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week, American Hakko retweeted this cool post about Ladyada’s "E is for Electronics" coloring book. We must get one! Um, you know, not for us…for any kids who stop by the office. Yeah, that’s it!

Popular Science shared a post that had us repeating this line in our heads: “Adaptable, self-replicating robots. Oh, my. Adaptable, self-replicating robots. Oh, my. Adaptable, self-replicating robots. Oh, my.”

Siberia? A scientific expedition? Mystery holes? How could you not want to read this post by Laboratory Equipment magazine?

The Edison Awards know about creativity and genius and they shared a current example with this post about Diet Coke printing 2 million unique bottle labels.

Is your photo next to “absent-minded” in the dictionary? We just remembered to tell you about this Instructables post outlining how to make your own “Don’t-Leave-Home-Without-It Machine.”

And we close out this week’s column with our post where we asked the question: What do you use to clean up a big ol’ mess?

There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We hope you enjoyed this week’s Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared other interesting blog posts with us.

A QUICK THANK YOU
