NQFF the last

What have you been sharing on Twitter this week? Sadly the death of Roger Tsien, but also some other links you found useful.

It’s the last of the trial posts of NQFF, and this time we’re trying something different. It’s an audio post. Obviously audio is a very tedious way of actually delivering links, so the stories in the audio are linked below.

We’ll be having a chat on Monday to decide what the best way forward is.

The stories this week are:
