The week in links 05/12/08

Another week, another fine collection of links for your own leisurely viewing and browsing. Five link blocks, descriptions and now a heading image which might not be relevant to the link below it as it was before. In other words the images themselves are sometimes the link if the visual work is what’s interesting. Just in case you ever wondered why the images were different.
