Weekly Linkfest – Edition 11

Welcome to round eleven of our (normally!) Weekly Linkfest, where we share the good, the bad, the ugly and the just plain interesting from what we’ve seen this week.

I would greatly appreciate readers getting involved in this weekly linkfest. Please email editor (at) with links (and ideally a summary sentence outlining the key point of each link) to noteworthy articles and news reports on the internet.

A big thank you to Øyvind for his contributions to this week’s linkfest!
