  Yard Sale at Raganwald's House
I’ve taken a weed whacker to the article links on the weblog’s sidebar (Heh, only an author would think that removing seven links is anything but a minor adjustment! But still, I’m fond of them all, it is difficult to let them go).

Here are the links I have removed:
  1. Ockham’s razor as it applies to the big rewrite

  2. Icebreakers

  3. Hiring a Juggler

  4. Are you thinking of working for a start up?

  5. Three blog posts I'd love to read (and one that I wouldn't)

  6. What Haskell teaches us about writing Enterprise-scale software I, II

  7. Programming conventions as signals

Sniff. I’ll miss them!

While I’m wallowing in grief, I might as well mention a few of my favourites that haven’t quite made it into the starting rotation. You know, sixth man and all that:
  1. Zen in the Art of Rewriting

  2. Rails-style creators in Java, or, how I learned to stop worrying and love anonymous inner classes

  3. What does Barbara Liskov have to say about Equality in Java?

  4. Why are local variables bad?

Well, it’s time to stick a price tag on them and carry them out to the lawn. Good bye, dear articles. Best of luck wherever you end up…

Shark Jumpage Ahoy!
 
You obviously find the idea that "blogging is an egocentric exercise" novel and insightful.
