Obligatory link page, you say?
...well not so obligatory anymore. There was a time, back when this site was created, that social networking was nowhere near its current level of ubiquity. The people who went to the trouble of creating personal web sites would often have a page of their favorite links, so that their friends and page visitors could find all the hidden treasures of the internet.
That was then, this is now. A link page is not only no longer obligatory for any personal site, it's actually more of an anachronism. For those who wish to follow me, I share certain items on my Google profile.
