Welcome to our late afternoon double-stacked linkdump. The Cryptosphere has finally moved into the new offices, shared with an unnamed community radio station, and they are swank indeed. I could podcast to my heart’s content with this setup, if it weren’t heavy on the Sarah McLachlan and lite on the Nine Inch Nails. But you can’t beat the price.

Anyhoodles, we have an extra-rich link roundup for you. Be sure and read our Cirque du Soleil drone performance art post as well; it’s amazing.
