As part of Dinca’s plan for 2016, we will implement a weekly reading list of links. This concept of aggregating a list of links is nothing new to the internet, especially blogs; however, we feel it might benefit our readers if we get in the routine of roundin’ up links every week (yeehaw!). These links will range from art to technology to cinema and beyond. Most likely, we will post these links every Monday and the links will be gathered from the previous seven or more days. We hope you enjoy!
