Thinking of linking

For anyone who is wondering, this is purely for my own reference. After several years of numerous "social bookmarking" sites, none of which do exactly what I want, this is where I now put all the stuff that might be useful to refer back to one day.
Linking does not necessarily imply endorsement, but then again, it might. You work it out.
