The First Xamuel.com Irregular Linkfest

I decided to start collecting interesting links and publishing them! I made the decision last week, and until then I had been utterly neglecting to “star” posts in Google Reader or save them in any other way, so the first batch of links is mostly limited to things I’ve run across in the past week. Anyway, enjoy the link love!
