Interesting career change, start-up and adventure links #1

Even the greatest ideas are stolen, begged or borrowed. Or something like that.

We’ve been meaning to do this for a while… and Al Humphreys’ new In Brief blog series reminded us to get going on the idea.

The concept is as follows: Dom, Mikey and myself send each other dozens of interesting links every week. We often bookmark them and sometimes we tweet / facebook them too. Once the new site is online we will upload the best stuff in our brand new Resources section.

However, for the time-being, it feels like a real waste of interesting and useful information (information that Escape the City members / readers might enjoy).

So here it is… the first instalment of what will hopefully become a Friday (occasional!) blog series of interesting links…
