I used to keep a kind of 'work blog' where I would dump random ideas about libraries, teaching, and online culture as a backlog brain. For technical reasons, that blog - called Blue Sky Thinking - is going to have to die.
I've taken most of the good bits of it and put into a separate New Jack blog called the New Jack Almanac of Fact.
This blog is not unlike Kottke's sidebar. Its a blog for myself - a place to store links without having to worry of providing a context for others to make sense of it.
