Weekly Links


Today we would like to unveil a new feature, the Weekly Links.

Every week, we are inundated with much more news than we can summarize and bring to you to view. There is simply just too much information out there.

The Weekly Links will be posted every Friday and will contain all the information we think you might be interested in seeing. There are plenty of news items out there that, while they don’t necessarily warrant their own post, should still be talked about and read by you. Some weeks there will be many, some weeks none.

The links will contain items culled from all over the internet. News outlets, blogs, micro-blogs, and every other type of digital information will be fair game to be put into the Weekly Links. Please give this weeks post a look. We hope you find it of value. The links are after the jump.
