A number of people post daily or weekly lists of internet published articles. I am not sure why I feel the need to join them, but here is my list for April 23 - 29, 2017. Posting these links does not necessarily constitute an endorsement. On the other hand these are not all the blog post I read but only those I thought worth a continued conversation.
