Another week, another catalog of interesting pieces of the internet, hand-picked for your consideration. It’s a tough job, but we’re happy to scour the digital landscape and identify the things you should see in these Links from Last Week posts. 

From Plain Text, our blog:

A Website for 3e8 — We designed a brand and website for our friend Kyle who runs a development shop named for the scientific notation for the speed of light.

From everywhere else:

Is It Worth It? — The venerable Ryan Clark shares his criteria for accepting new work.
