Top 12 Posts from 2014



Below are a list of my personal top 12 favourite posts of the year. A few notes are in order before we get to the list:

  • Other than top 12 overall there’s no particular order
  • These posts are all written by me but may appear around the web and not necessarily all here at Frictionless
