      I’m trying to make it a habit!

      These links are, in general, the links I tweet … so if you’re not on Twitter this is basically a more efficient way of seeing what I tweet.

      It’s partly an aide-memoire for myself; collecting them here makes them a lot easier for me to re-find than scrolling through the nigh-infinite horizons of Twitter, and making them public is icing on the cake. If you hit the “notify me of follow-up posts by email” below, it’ll sign ya up to be emailed whenever I post, and my goal is to collate these a couple times a week!
