Good good links #71

It’s the last day of the year. [insert freak-out] Okay … My mind is in mini-vacation mode already [a four-day weekend ahead does that] or maybe it’s simply sleep-deprivation [hello, New Year’s resolution!] so I will keep this short and sweet. After skipping the good good links on Sunday in favour of family time during the holidays I’m bringing them back today. Meaning you’ll get two of these this week with the next one coming on January 4th – in the new year already! We’ll talk again tomorrow for some Thinking out loud but until then:

Guten Rutsch!Rutsch guet übere! – [and because I’m not sure how you guys properly word this German saying] Enjoy your New Year’s Eve!
