Your Monkey's Link-Fu is Not Strong....

I have many links held open in my browser. Some are intended for blogging, some are just things I'm interested in, some are articles I want to read or show people. The list might give you some insight into what kind of research I do and how I absorb information. This is maybe a bit more than a typical day's take from The Google, Google Reader, email lists, and other sources.
