I guess I never explained this “link roundup” thing.
Here’s the deal: it takes me a really, really long time to write anything at all. And at such a sluggish pace, I can’t cover a tenth of the interesting junk I run across during the course of a day. So rather than let post after post of unfinished full-length commentary languish in draft, I attached my del.icio.us account to this blog and started publishing my bookmarks in chunks of 4 or 5. This way, my commentary is necessarily limited to 250 characters, and I’m pretty much forced to keep things simple. Which is best for both of us.
This is not to say I won’t also be writing full-length posts any more–but there’ll probably be lots of supplemental content in between. Hooray?
