I’m thinking that this week’s Link Drop Contextd might be the smallest set that I’ve put together. There wasn’t anything that was holding me back, I checked the same sites and new one’s and this is all that I wanted to put up. Hopefully the quality is up to your standards. Was there anything that caught your attention that you think I should check out?

    It warms my heart to know that Joe Clark hasn't changed a bit since I first encountered his particular brand of, ah, tough love, on the HTML Writers Guild listservs circa 1995ish. Still out there convincing the world he's smarter than everyone else through sheer force of condescension. Ah, Joe: stay sweet; never change!
