Friday Roundup – Week 2

I’m off to Cumbria for a long weekend of rest, relaxation and fun with friends for a birthday. It’s going to be great and I’m going to be disconnected, at least virtually, from the world to make the most of the weekend.

To keep you all busy until Tuesday when I might consider reconnecting myself, here’s a collection of interesting tidbits from my week’s reading:
