Welcome back to the Daily Link Roundup! Now renamed and slightly reconceptualized. Don’t worry, there are no big changes, at least for now.
One thing you may notice is an increased emphasis on game-related articles, which was only inevitable. Another thing that I will be phasing out are “srs bzns” categories– not for lack of significance, but because there are much better aggregators than me for such topics and there is only so far one daily linklist can spread itself.
I have to thank everyone again for staying patient with me while I weathered, first, the grieving process and then a bunch of oh-shit academic deadlines. As a result, tonight’s list will be exceptionally long for a Saturday. Hit the jump for a drink from the hyperlink firehose.
