The Best Reads of 2013

The best articles I read throughout 2013.

This year I started a recurring segment on my blog, to catalog my favorite articles from around the web.

It seems fitting, then, that I look back on the year and pick out the highlights of what I read. Since this is a yearly summary I’ve got more than my usual 3 or 4 links to share, so I’ve broken them down by category.
