Interesting links from the past several weeks.

Captain Chimera is a long story being written by a lot of people. Currently their are 25 people lined up to write and the first 9 have already written their parts and the story is unfolding (I haven’t read it yet).

These types of posts have true value for revisitors – the regular image / photo posts have no value to man or his dog.
Not sure if I am a lone voice or the only person who checks your site on a regular basis. Take it with a pinch of salt.

Jason – I’m glad someone sees the value in these huge link fests. I wasn’t sure either way. The photos will continue as that’s a hobby and lots of my friends visit BrainFuel. Others have commented that BrainFuel needs more focus (e.g. stay on a single topic – web design) but I’m not listening.
