First of all, the name of the puzzle was stellar! I must have a list of ALL the sites though. I was totally intrigued by some of them. Thanks a bunch.

Well, I didn't know much about Pepperdoc before, other than we often are close in the WP rankings, but I learned something about her orbit.

And, yes, this looked more like Lynn's real list.

Thanks, Pepper. You obviously read a lot, but you are a lady of few words. Excellent puzzle.

Thanks for the feedback.
Here's the list.

Phrase 1. Most questions are answered in seconds
Clue 1. (Try this out. Your question may already be answered in their database, or one of their experts will search and provide an answer quickly. Users can also apply to become "experts" on this site.)

Phrase 2. Great resource on any how to question
Clue 2. (Pretty self-explanatory. Lots of how-to tips on many things.)

Phrase 3. Guidelines for writing research papers
Clue 3. (In the U.S., especially in humanities graduate work, you most likely use the MLA guidelines in writing research papers, which is what I've been using the last year and a half.)

These next ones: people and organizations, I also follow on Twitter because they post interesting URL links to stories and other information:

Phrase 4. Brief talks that motivate and inspire
Clue 4. (If you ever have an opportunity to go to a TED - Technology Education Design - Conference, go! I attended a regional conference, TEDxSMU last fall. Life changing. Check out talks by J.J. Abrams/Mystery Box, Patti Mae/Sixth Sense and the boy who harnessed the wind William Kamkwamba - his is an unbelievable story.)

Phrase 5. Mark Twain said whoever is happy will make others happy too
Clue 5. (Pretty self explanatory website.)

Phrase 6. Everything you want to know about books
Clue 6. (I check out their recommendations and book-related articles.)

Phrase 7. Learn the latest technology trends
Clue 7. (I met Cali Lewis, host of this internet TV show, when she was a keynote at a conference my organization hosted this spring. She comments on "bright, shiny tech news" in brief segments.)

Phrase 8. Women around the world contribute news items
Clue 8. (I met the publisher Marisa Trevino in a Digital Media class last year. She's a journalist, playwright and public radio commentator. Provides different perspectives on the world as I know it.)

Phrase 9. Reduce your carbon footprint
Clue 9. (I look for Green IT trends and check out the technology section of this website.)

Phrase 10. Site of World War II codebreaking
Clue 10. (Stumbled upon this site on Twitter and exchanged notes with the person who handles their web news. I toured the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. a couple of years ago, and have read quite a bit about Bletchley Park since then.)

Heard of almost none of these. Thanks for sharing all ten. I'll visit some to see their utility for my interests.
This community puzzle concept is doing great.
