Geek Links — March 21, 2011
Posted on March 21, 2011 by Chris Nelson
Sorry for the lack of updates these past few weeks. Work has been a bit busy. In fact, it’s been so busy that the links collected below constitute everything I’ve flagged since the beginning of the month! Special thanks to Kris, Ed, and Tosin for a number of the links here.
But before you check these out, hop on over to Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund. Japan Society is a friend of Dreamlogic.net, and 100% of the proceeds go to Japan. Seriously. 100%. You can’t get any better than that.
