This is bannered “Interests from Twitter,” and if nothing else, this makes me wonder if Biz Stone has been summoned just to clean up the mess:

(2) Why I should give a flip about any of this.

    Looks like the category list I would have amassed while pretending to be A Serious Blogger, had I not occasionally weeded out the one-fers and two-fers from time to time.
