Wired covered the limitations of privacy in privacy coins. Well written, researched, and balanced.
Similarly, @joltz, creator of the /grin-security repo and a security contact, shared some thoughts about privacy in the context of grin and other cryptocurrencies. Must read.
@DavidBurkett announced the first GrinJoin transaction: 9 different transactions were sent via TOR to a GrinJoin server, and were joined together before being seen by the p2p network. Further work is required to make this an untrusted setup, but is a nice demo of the type of obfuscation of the transaction graph that's possible to do on the second layer of Grin.
The Grin page on Bitcointalk has gotten a revamp, courtesy of a grin community member.

Shout out to @antiochp who has been working together with @hashmap and @DavidBurkett for quite some while to figure out some weird syncing issues we’ve been seeing, and the actual bug caught well… is a bit mind-blowing.
In last week's developer meeting: Review of 3.0.0 status, upgrade communications to ecosystem, a /packaging repo is being created, Node API v2, and an extensive discussion about the future focus of Grin (also a must read).
