Last night, I visited with Paul and Diana, who sagely suggest that it would be very cool to colorcode the purpose/relevance of each of my links on this site. Each link makes immediate sense to me in context, but then I wouldn't need to use words at all if we were psychic!
My first pass at colorcodable link categories: 1) Independently amusing, barely suggestive relevance (like 'stalkers' above). 2) Independently worthwhile, barely suggestive relevance (like most any possible link to edge.org or gladwell.com). 3) Adding context to clarify my meaning (like linking a shot of a beautiful sky from 'blue' to distinguish it from a bad mood; or most of my repeated links to friends' sites), usually independently amusing as well because I rock like that. 4) Adding context AND independently worthwhile (like links to Nietzsche quotes). 5) Borderline constituting its own blog entry from me (like my not-so-subtle list of favorite repeated-viewing films).
I would appreciate other suggestions on this idea! Also, I wonder what prior art exists along these lines . . .
I'm acting as a Java trainer up there in the Land of Bryn Mawr. We just may find out how long I can live without Jamba Juice.
Ramping up! Paul and I use that phrase to describe the spiraling and building of great romantic opportunities. Joanna and I are healthily happy. She continues to amaze me with her energetic connections.
'Club 23' is starting to take off, infused with direction by Peter Chang and Tom Scudder. I don't yet know whom to credit for its evolving site design.
