It’s obvious you can find anything you’re looking for on the web. There are plenty of sites linking to commercial and professional sites and blogs featuring book reviews with affiliate links. It’s easy to find links to ad-infested news, novelty, and technology-related destinations on the web, and sites using intrusive overlays and slide-outs. All these sites can be useful when that’s what you’re looking for.

but there’s an alternative

What if you just want to explore people and ideas without being distracted by attempts to sell you something or annoying you with intrusive advertising and promotion?

That’s why I created dailywebthing daily pointers back in 2000. I like to think I’m providing a means to explore the web of atypical people and ideas without all the noise. That’s why I link.
