Hello all readers and welcome to our newish thing, which was called ‘Crowdsauce‘.
No doubt this shabby pun is in use in many places on the internet, but here it denotes a round-up post, potentially replacing our weekly infographic, where we can relax and share some fun or interesting stuff (caveat: mostly pointless).
It wasn’t doing very well, named ‘Crowd Sauce’, so we’ve gamified the title a little bit. I hope you don’t feel you were led here under false pretences?
The categories will likely differ each week. Let’s go…

Econsultancy blog spam comment of the week
Two big punches on the ground later, and it was all over. Amazing. Jose Aldo defeats Chad Mendes by KO at 4:59 of round one. After the knockout, Aldo ran out of the ring and jumped in the crowd. They in turn lifted their hero on their shoulders and walked him around. These Brazilian crowds are something to behold. What a great night of fights.
