Oh, wow! Thank you so much for doing this! It's such a generous effort on your part and it looks great, thank you! I'm pretty spooked about how much got published in April. Such an eclectic mix. I'd better get on with doing that newsletter then :)

Speaking of newsletters, there's a web wide world section to highlight great stuff from other people (awareness campaigns, interesting online happenings etc). If anyone has a link they would like featured there just say. It's going out in about 3 hours.
