A quiet few weeks (unfortunately, get used to it) as I started a new gig in San Francisco (it only took two years to get here!) and I have a two month old that takes up a bunch of my non-work hours (zero complaining, just mentioning that fact).
What I did do this past week was consolidate some articles, posts, and charts that I found interesting and/or may want to revisit. Not sure if they would be of interest to you all, but I thought I would share (found below following my links since the last recap).
