On March 3rd I posted a quick summary of a book I was reading called "A Beginner's Guide to Immortality" by author Cliff Pickover and just a quickly forgot about the post. If you haven't read the post yet, I encourage you to do so.
Today I was checking Pickover's Reality Carnival, a link-blog he maintains daily. It's kind of like Fark, but more science/art influenced. I've had a link to it on the right side of Dropmystraw since Mandy and I first started it. It's the first thing I check whenever I hop online. It's always one link and it's always interesting. Especially the 3/17/2007 link.
I was amazed to find that he, of his own volition, linked back to Drop My Straw! If you click on the reality carnival link on the right side, look for the link for 3/17/2007 - it links back to my post! The coolest thing is I never submitted the blog or my post to his site. He must've found it by googling his name, book title, or some combination. Either way, it's really cool. It's amazing how enabling the internet is becoming. I read a cool book, post a quick review, the author finds the review, link back to my site, I post about the linking and everyone knows everyone. It's really cool.
