I used to send interesting links and information to my friends on a distribution list I had called “smart people I know”. Eventually I decided to create a blog to collect all the information and I blog it here instead. That’s why it has the name it does.
Most of the entries in this blog will be along the lines of: “hey, I found this interesting, and here’s why”. Over at my Posterous blog I keep more of a notebook where I try to write out longer pieces that are more introspective and creative and less a response to things I come across. I also keep a Tumblr/Tumble log which pulls together my twitter feed and highlights postings I make from other parts of the web.
