makeout city
Interesting links, introduced in the best way: with excerpts. "Excerpts? I can just click on the link and start reading..." no you can't. First, there's the mental dislocation that accompanies going to a new site. "Hm, loading...weird design, hm, guess it's ok, where's the text? ah here, hey, I like the way they do permalinks, ok, so, the text." Second, the ideas that make it interesting may be buried too deep for you to pick up in your shallow skimming across the web. This way, though, you get a feel for the article more or less instantly. You don't miss good links, you don't click on boring ones.
