The ninth and final entry in this series, for now. It’s been good to dig into my bookmarks and get this stuff up here, random as it is, so it’s searchable and readable and hopefully edifying for any visitor who happens by.
Anyway, here’s what I saved to my ‘Blogfodder’ folder in the latter half of 2007:
- How to Visit New York, by Anil Dash / Another NYC link I missed before we went. In a way I’m glad I did, because I completely disagree about Katz’s: best turkey sandwich I’ve ever had, hands down.
- 33 Names of Things You Never Knew Had Names
- Summer Japanese Sweets to Cool You Down / How do they make them so pretty?
- Cheat-Sheets.org / A coder’s best friend: “All cheat sheets, round-ups, quick reference cards, quick reference guides and quick reference sheets in one page.”
- Movie Primers Directory
- Wired Geekipedia / “Wikipedia doesn’t distinguish ‘need to know’ from ‘didja know?’ —- and it’s lousy for browsing. That’s why we created Wired Geekipedia. Godwin’s law, Guitar Hero, Gates Foundation —- you may know their definitions, but we tell you what they really mean.”
- Gems from the archive of the New York Times
- Inscribed in the Living Tile: Type in the Toronto subway
- The Museum of Online Museums
- How to Do Philosophy / Good advice here.
- List of unusual articles on Wikipedia
- How to Cook: A Guide For Gentlemen / Thanks, Mat.
- Japan, Ink: Inside the Manga Industrial Complex / I’ve Instapaper’d this one for a proper offline read.
- The Guardian Guide to Baking / This is making me hungry.
- The ring cycle / “Jon Ronson had little interest in professional wrestling, other than a mild concern about his son’s obsession with musclemen hurling chairs at each other’s heads. But all that changed when one of its star names, Chris Benoit, killed himself and his family.” It’s always hard to read stories about pro wrestling in the mainstream press, but this isn’t about that.
