Nice interview with John Gruber, proprietor of Daring Fireball. His explanation of how he selects links could easily double for mine:

As for what I link to and what I don't, it's very much like Justice Stewart's definition of obscenity: "I know it when I see it." There's a certain pace and rhythm to what I'm going for, a mix of the technical, the artful, the thoughtful, and the absurd. In the same way that I strive to achieve a certain voice in my prose, as a writer, I strive for a certain voice with regard to what I link to. No single item I post to the Linked List is all that important. It's the mix, the gestalt of an entire day's worth taken together, that matters to me.

John Gruber is asking folks to renew their Daring Fireball memberships. Money well spent, I say.
