After doing more than 150 of these, I have come to the conclusion that it is time for me to take a permanent break from HWN. I realize that

"we could do better", and have something a bit more edited than a collection of links, and some quotes. I wish I had more time to devote to such endeavour, but my time is currently being taken up by trying to help my 1 year old explore her little world. We owe Daniel a huge debt of thanks. HWN is a huge service to the community. I have read many interesting blog posts that I would have never otherwise found. Thank you! We really need a successor! Please, please.

This issue covers from January 18 to 31, 2015 After doing more than 150 of these, I have come to the conclusion that it is time for me to take a permanent break from HWN. I realize that "we could do better", and have something a bit more edited than a collection of links, and some quotes. I wish I had more time to devote to such endeavor, but my time is currently being taken up by trying to help my 1 year old explore her little world. If you'd like to be the one to continue the long tradition of HWN, drop me a line. Thanks for following along for the last 3 years!
