Three of a kind [reprise]

Last summer I briefly tried to ‘curate’ (that ones for Mike!) a weekly list of links I’d found interesting. It didn’t last long. I’m not convinced I’m going to be any better this time but I am reading *alot* of blogposts at the moment and sending quite a bit to Evernote so we’ll see.

Anyway here are three posts that particularly sparked my interest this week and they are all pretty inter-related. Think of this as the infographic edition!
