Oh, hey, it’s the fourth week of my new interesting reads series.

I’m going to miss next week, though. Week five will be on the sixth week.

The Rules

Here are the rules for what articles I choose to include in this weekly roundup:

  1. It can’t be anything I wrote.
  2. It has to be something I actually read. Nothing that simply had an interesting headline.
  3. I have to have read it since the previous post. It does not have to be something that was written in the past week.
  4. It has to be something I read online. In other words, it has to be a webpage with a URL.
