Simply parroting this information back does not make much sense - a listing of links would do fine in that case without further commentary. What might be better would be a way to synthesize the information in order to discover the diamonds contained in the rough.
One thing I have learned dating back to my analyst days is that if I truly understand something, I can build a model of it. So a periodic task in this blog will be to develop an organizational model that contains the understandings of the research and insights that is out there.
