Links: April 14, 2013

I’m taking a page from NakedCapitalism and introducing a new segment at TheDroneFallacy. From now on, there will be a regular list of “Links” to articles and other media related to drones (Sorry, there won’t be any cute animal pictures accompanying my Links).

Readers will be able to find all and any relevant information regarding drones that has come up between every posting of a “Links” segment, along with the usual commentary by myself and guest posters. Links considered particularly pertinent will be bolded for your convenience. I will no longer be posting articles from other sources as I used to, but if a piece is important enough I may make a separate post about it.

Without further ado, here are the links for today:
