While trying to think of ways to generate more new content for my blog, I realized something that in retrospect should have been a no-brainer. I’m seeing hundreds of links daily on the internet through Google Reader, Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere… so why not round up my favorite ones and share them here? Anyway, this might be a bit of a shaky beginning but I’d love to get into the habit of doing this weekly. I read a lot about food, so expect to see some of that here, in addition to articles about education and life in general.
