New site:

Hey I don't know why it took me so long to think to do this. permalink  permalink

What it is -- Every link I've pushed to Twitter since April 2009. permalink

How it works -- I don't call Twitter to get these links, so when Oauthcalypse Day comes, this little app might survive.  permalink

I store all these links in a database on one of my servers. I have a bookmarklet I use to create each link, even ones I create on my iPad, and because it needs to record info about the link to maintain the Top 40 list, the data is around, and I never delete it. So it was there.  permalink

What's interesting is how much it looks like the early days of Scripting News. Lots of links to stuff with snarky comments. We go so far just to come back to where we began! The earth is round, so is time. Big wheel keep turning. Etc etc. permalink

Monkey riding a goat via Chuck Shotton via BoingBoing. permalink

It gets built at least once a night. I might have it rebuild every time I add a link. permalink
