And that’s going to do it folks. This Week That Was was a side project to highlight all the weird and wonderful stories that crossed my path over the course of managing the newsfeeds at SmartNews. As of last week, I don’t do that anymore so I’m going to give this weekly post a rest.

Thank you everyone that followed along, especially Roberto, Ian, Todd, Gregg Mie & Dav. It was a blast!
