Bury Me With My Money

So on the advice of a certain Mr. Sam Walker I set up something called a del.i.cious (I apologize if i misplaced those periods. Please forgive my ignorance) account. Apparently, I'm can bookmark all of the neat websites I visit and place them on a page, so others can enjoy my particular flavor of cyberspace.

I like the concept, but I worry that my delicious account will become another strain on my already thinly-stretched supply of cyber-creativity. A sizable portion of my blog posts are directly related to neat things I discover via the inter-connectiveness-web. The fact that the kilogram is defined based on an actual physical object? That sweet dino comics physics proof? A lot of other stuff I can't recall at the moment? It's possible that none of these items would have made the blog if I'd merely dumped them into my delicious account and forgot about them.

In fact, I think Sam Walker's paucity of blog posts may be partially explainable by his overuse of a delicious. How else could someone who spends such long hours trolling the web for fresh meat, who rivals wikipedia in the storage of useless factoids, who is always the first to leave a snarky comment when someone misplaces an apostrophe, neglect his own blog to such an extent?

BUT: Upon further review, I imagine that a del.i.cious account will inspire me to write more blog posts about neato stuff on the web, not less. For example, if not for my thoughts about what to link to on delicious during the day, I probably would have neglected to find and download this bitchin Sega Genesis Emulator, a marvelous device which allows one to download ROM files of old Sega games and mess around with 'em on one's computer.

I won't say precisely how much Sega I've played this evening. Let's just say that that Death Adder's reign of terror is over, and Chief Scalpen is safely behind bars.

Hmmmm, perhaps I can do a series of posts about sega games that were important to me... or is that more of a Superblog thing? We shall see.

I'm not very good at Trivial Pursuit. It doesn't cover the kind of trivia I'm interested in.
