The Linkblog

I’ve just started a new thing, and it’s part of this very site. Inspired by Cory Doctorow’s excellent linkblog,, and born out of a desire to have less of my life depend on social media platforms I have no control over, I’m going to be putting together short posts based on a link and including some context, and perhaps some supporting links, and calling the result The Linkblog. Expected contents: anything I’m interested in, really. The first one’s already up; enjoy!

I hope you get a kick out of it.

(Yes, the little “from the _____ desk” thing is indeed inspired by MAD Magazine’s “departments,” though I was most recently reminded of this little bit of editorialization by Techdirt.)
