March 20th: Weekly Design Links

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” — Stephen Hawking

Each week seems to be getting shorter lately. We all know that time is relative thanks to Einstein. But, it doesn’t really help me plan my week. I’ve read all the productivity stuff and I’ve even taken a class or two to help learn to prioritize. These things have helped… some. Somehow, we get the important things done–and we all have a skill of pushing the other stuff to the side, consciously or unconsciously.

The links are a priority, so let’s get to it.
