Really Interesting Blog Snippets I Don’t Have Time to Comment On…
I’m swamped right now and have about 30 tabs open in Mozilla referencing things I expected to blog about but simply haven’t had the time to. Rather than bloat Mozilla’s memory consumption further and lose these, I figured I’d jot them down.
Yes, I should use any number of the services available to track these sorts of things for this very purpose, but I’m just old fashioned, I guess…
Perhaps you’ll find these snippets interesting, also.

Sadly I may not get around to blogging about many of these. I’ve got a ton more from the emerging technology, VC and virtualization space, too.
I don’t want to become another story summarizer, but perhaps I’ll use this format to cover things I can’t get to every week.
