I think it was John Wayne who once remarked, ‘you never really know a man till you’ve seen his bar.’ Or maybe that was just me talking in a John Wayne voice. If so it was a pretty good John Wayne voice.
My point is, your bookmark bar boils crap down to the bare essentials. To the extent that you are what you surf, the bar is who you are. You can’t be all, ‘I can’t start my morning without reading The Atlantic and The Economist, they just put everything in perspective for me, you know?’ when in reality you’re just sucking down XKCD and checking your Twitter feed. The bar speaks only the truth.
So in the spirit of journalistic transparency, I’m going to transcribe my bookmarks bar. It goes, from left to right:
The New York Times
Ain’t It Cool News
Brownstoner (it’s a Brooklyn thing)
Order of the Stick
There. I showed you mine. I challenge any and all Techlanders to show me theirs.
