Weekly twitter links (March 30th)

30 Mar 2009

Given that I’ve been diverting a fair amount of attention to posting on Twitter lately (@puredanger) I thought maybe it would be worthwhile dropping the set of links I post there to this blog. I’m on the fence about whether this is actually annoying or useful. I’m sure you’ll let me know. :)
