We’re really, really, really trying to concentrate on getting out year end thoughts, best-of list and so on put together, but it’s hard. We’re trying to cut back on the linkblogging but we keep seeing things we want to make fun of. Anyway, the content will be kind of light today, while we gather our thoughts.
