The start-of-year linkdump

Hope everyone’s been having a happy new year! I’ll start of the first post of the year with yet another linkdump covering all the news stories from the last three weeks. This past December’s been an extremely hectic one with lots of travel to see family and friends, hence my inability to provide updates at regular intervals. I’m back in front of the desktop now, finishing the final stretch of the thesis. News updates should be back to the regular schedule again.
