Link Dump: Clearing Out My Todo List

I tend to stumble across a lot of interesting things as I travel across the web, and one of my productivity methods is to save the things I don't have time to check out immediately to Todoist. Unfortunately, time can be short, and life busy, so those 'thats an interesting article', 'i could use that tech thing' and 'that would be cool to blog about' things tend to just build up, and clutter my todo lists in an ever less efficient manner. So today lets clear some of that out!

This post will be a vaguely categorised link dump, and depending on if I remember why I saved it, maybe some notes too.

Looking over everything, there seem to be trends around development, security, privacy, blog/website, docker, tech, automation, branding and general performance/efficiency. Not really surprising when I think about the things that tend to interest me :)

Hope you find something interesting!
