Happy Groundhog Day! Please feel free to read this roundup over and over again.

Poynter posted a couple of videos from the early days of Lotus 1-2-3, which was released 32 years ago, on Jan. 26, 1983. In this video, you can see how exciting a workday becomes, when new spreadsheet software is installed. Does Excel ever make you feel like dancing?
