I like year-end lists but haven’t made time for my own. I’d like to do some sort of retrospective, but looking back generally isn’t something that’s terribly helpful for me.
Nonetheless, I want to note that one of my enjoyable reading experiences of 2008 was the blog Deux Ex Malcontent. You should add it to your daily reading. and I’d like to link to Chez’s Ten Most Ridiculous, Shameful or Generally Unfortunate People and Events of 2008. If you don’t have the time to read through it all, at least scroll down to #1.
