Spreading the love around

For your weekend reading pleasure: some posts and articles we came across during the week. There’s no real rhyme or reason to the selection – it’s just things we enjoyed. Or didn’t enjoy. And truth be told, this is not even a week’s worth… we only thought of doing a weekly link post last Thursday, so the selection may be a little thin this week.

Feel free to add your own links in comments. One link per comment is probably best, otherwise our spam filter gets uptight.
