This week on the podcast we collect a selection of traits online, somehow managing to be well read, on trend and polite as well as monitoring happiness.

If we mentioned a place that you would like to visit online, then you can find all the links right here:

bbc.jpgThe latest Gartner hype-cycle report is out. What's hot and what's not in gadgets and technology. BBC Silicon Valley reporter Maggie Shiels deciphers the graphs for us.

dr.jpgNice manners go a long way online. If you have a dilemma about the do's and don't of social networking it might be worth emailing Dr Mariann Hardey for a little advice about etiquette online.

j.jpgRead any good books lately? If social media is your thing, then Jurgen Appelo has a top 100 list of books that might appeal. Though he has quite a few to catch up on himself!

bird.jpgHow can you measure the happiness of a community online? Peter Dodds and Christopher Danforth of the University of Vermont are monitoring ways to find out more about our mood online via blogs and social networks. Peter explained how One Happy Bird works.

If you have seen a blog or heard a podcast that you think we should know about, drop me a line at podsandblogs -at- bbc.co.uk I'd love to hear from you. Or you can follow us on Twitter.

jk Back next week with more from the web - Jamillah
