Greetings Webtaculators! The best month of the year is upon us, even though the Giants aren’t part of it this time around. It’s OK though, because next year is even. Also, we here at Webtacular World apologize for the large amount of NY Times articles this week We usually try to get more varied sites in, but sometimes things just don’t work out that way. Plus, they actually did a lot of good reporting that is worth reading. On to the news.
