The first of a new type of post.
The week on the Internet that was 25/10 to 31/10.
Being hooked on RSS, Twitter and Facebook, I encounter thousands of links every week. Most I skim but some are interesting or inspiring enough to share. These weekly posts are an attempt to collate these links in a single post accompanied with a short description. They are in no particular order.
Not sure if anyone will be interested but not everyone is on Twitter (where I normally share links) and I don’t think I’ll be spamming Facebook with them any time soon.
