This is an auto-posted collection of my public links on Pinboard.in for May 1st from 06:37 to 16:25:

  • Mightygodking.com » Post Topic » Ansaz, three – Bookmarked for the killer Quantum Leap continuation/sequel posted as the answer to Der Whelk's question (scroll down a bit).

  • Data versus diabetes – Boing Boing – Bookmarked for the boingboing comment thread on my post.
