Interesting Links 3 April 2016

Some weeks the blog post ideas flow like water. And then there is last week. I don't know how Doug Peterson and Mark Guzdial manage to get something interesting to post every day. Or at least every weekday in Mark's case. At least I saw enough interesting things from other people last week to have things to share. So let’s get to it.
