Link from "The Long Tail"

I was just on Chris Anderson's new blog, The Long Tail and noticed an interesting link. On the left side Anderson has a section called "Long Tail comment elsewhere:" and as I was perusing through the links I happened to noticed one I recognized:

A sidenote on embracing 'waste': "Just think of digital cameras, for example. While you once might not have taken a picture of that sign you thought was funny on the street because you didn't want to waste your film, it's no longer something you worry about. With space no longer an issue you're capturing more of your life."
That's me! I'm incredibly excited about this link. Beyond just being the editor of my favorite magazined, Wired, Anderson's original long tail article really blew up the way I think about the world. It was one of those "wow" moments, where my whole frame of mind changed. To know that he read something I wrote and liked it enough to link to it is incredibly exciting for me.

I guess you could call me a dork, but at least I'm proud of it.
