Shorter issue this week. I ended up ignoring a bunch of articles I thought promising before actually reading them, and at the same time there are some topics I don’t necessarily want to keep including here, even if they are still relevant and things I pay attention to. Anyway, three featured articles instead of the usual five and a few extra links pulled from my open tabs.
