James Lileks likes his Hummels
I'm a big fan of James Lileks
, a writer for the Star Tribune
of Minneapolis/St.Paul. I'd like to say I became familiar with Lileks during time I spent in Minneapolis in the mid-90s setting up online stock trading for American Express Financial Services, but I didn't. I actually learned about him after the Blog Explosion of the early 2K's; his famous Olive Garden
"Screed" of February, 2002 was the first of his essays I remember reading.
Anyway, I was looking on del.icio.us for Hummels
references and found that on December 14, 2004, James Lileks set up a del.icio.us account
, linked five sites and never used it again. Three of the five sites were Hummel sites.
I like Hummels as much as the next guy, and probably a lot more, but using del.icio.us almost solely for tracking Hummels is an unusual application for the service.
