Someone, at some point - it may have been one of those Yellow Pages-like Guides To The Web - referred to "the inevitable links page" on personal homepages. And, yes, it's true, they crop up like crabgrass and oftentimes are about as much use.
So why am I contributing to this tendency? 'cause my Bookmarks are different. No, really! Much, or perhaps all, of the following may not be of much (or any) interest or use to you. But all of the following piqued my interest at one point, and I think they're worth noting. I put together these bookmarks and annotated them for my own personal use, and sites on those things which don't interest me (like math, for example, or pro hockey) aren't included here.
* If you see the asterisk in front of a bookmark, it means that I think particularly highly of it.
