Anyone who comes here just for the links (that means all four of you who come here, period) will be VERY pleased to learn that all 2007 linkbuckets (thanks again to Max for the name!) are now tagged. Click on "linkbucket" in the menu to the right and check it out. I might get around to tagging previous years…for future Christmases.
Rather than sit down and write a Year in Review piece that involves thought, below you’ll find 32 links…one from each linkbucket this year so far. Note that this is not cheating with the Linkbucket, since I’m telling you upfront that these are reruns.
Choices were made quickly, almost at random. If I happened to post a link that somehow changed your life (like, say, this one) I’d love to hear about it.
