Welcome to Link Propagation, a Packet Pushers newsletter. Link Propagation is included in your free membership.
Each week we hand-select the most relevant practitioner blog posts, tech news, and product announcements. We age them in oak barrels for up to seven days and then distill them using ancient craft techniques handed down by Tim Berners-Lee.
We recommend pairing this issue with a chocolate-glazed virtual donut.
