Some people may have actually noticed that I’ve started this site. Some may have shown up here from Facebook, or I suppose from Twitter. Certainly there seem to be people actually ending up here from various places, so perhaps an explanation is in order.
Last summer, I decided to set up some sort of system to keep track of things that I came across online, maybe write down a few thoughts about links or images… fairly typical these days. I settled on Tumblr, mainly because of the simple, spartan nature of its interface, and because of the presence of an API, which would allow me to automate various aspects of running the site.
