Interesting Links 17 February 2014

We’re having quite the winter here in New England this year. chain linksPeople in warm climates keep telling me about how warm it is there as if that would get me going. But I like the snow so I’m all good. I hope you are enjoying the weather where you are. In any case, here now are the links I found interesting over the last week.
