As I mentioned in my return post, I’m starting to experiment with a few new things around here. The first of these new features is a regular roundup of interesting websites, articles, products and promotions I’ve found on my travels.

Take in mind I’m a regular twitter and tumblr user so there may be some cross-over elements between what I post here and the material featured elsewhere.

If you’d like to volunteer anything for this regular roundup, please feel free to forward me the details via my ‘contact’ page (alternatively, you can always direct message me on twitter if that’s your thing)
