Small link roundup again today:
--- As of a few days ago the Italian Wikipedia has 1 million articles.
--- Asteroid 2012 DA14 will be one of the closest flybys we've ever seen, and in addition to this it is a particularly large object: 50 metres in diameter compared to our usual 5 - 10 metres or so. This combination of close distance and large size makes it an interesting enough encounter that NASA has just released a video on the flyby.
--- This article in French says that German is more and more popular in schools...in Senegal.
