Good good links #107

Knock, knock. Is anybody still around? Going a full week – until now, that is – without a post seems like half a century in the fast-paced world of social media. Especially as I didn’t intentionally skip the posts but technology conspired against me and the internet kept failing throughout trying to draft posts.* Enough of that, though, because today’s focus is on the plethora of amazing posts I found this week.

* in case you’re wondering how I as still able to read others’ posts: All thanks to my phone and functionable wi-fi in places other than my apartment.

Have a great Sunday!
