Regulars can skip this bit and get on with the links – as usual, I’ve loaded ye down with far too much awesome stuff.
Right, then, my dear new patrons of the cantina: Welcome to Los Links! The more detail-oriented among you might be howling about the date, but I assure you it’s correct. Los Links is a collection of bloggage and newsage that caught my eye from the past week. I stop collecting on Friday, and spend my weekend in frantic assembly, then present you my findings every Monday.
I wish I could provide a capsule description of each link, but that turned out to make this a monstrous task. I’ll happily go back to ye olden days when I could include a clever sentence or so for each and every link if some rich bugger in the audience would be so kind as to set me up with a trust fund. If I could quit my day job, I’d have plenty of time for the several books I’m writing, the blog, research for the blog, research for the books, the cat, geological outings, Doctor Who, Twitter, my poor neglected friends, and a sweet capsule sentence with each link. Rich buggers wishing to bequeath me some fundage can apply in the comments. You don’t have to be filthy rich, merely fabulously rich. My needs are modest.
Even without a wealthy patron, I do have time to break links up into useful categories, so if you’ve a particular area of interest, you should be able to find what you’re looking for relatively quickly. Hot topics that swept the intertoobz but probably won’t become enduring categories are at the top. Items I particularly want to impress upon you are in bold, but that’s not to say you should read only those. If it’s here, whether it’s bold or not, it’s something worth reading.
And before you go telling me how awesomely good I am at finding interesting stuff, please note: it’s all down to the folks I follow on Twitter. Thanks properly belong to them.
Right. Let’s get on with Los Links, then, shall we?
