24


For the past few years I’ve revisited all the Pinboard bookmarks collected during the course of the year, and picked out 24 of them to be tweeted as a kind of advent calendar – one for each two week period, starting in January and moving through the year chronologically. A sort of year-in-review. Since I only started posting short notes and tweets directly from my site mid 2015, I don’t have 2014’s set of tweets collected here – yet.
