Dave Winer is doing some work involving blogrolls. His recent posts inspired me to resurrect the blogroll on this site. It’s back in the sidebar and driven from my reading list via a simple OPML to HTML script and a bit of copy and paste action.

There hasn’t been a blogroll here since 2006–when the site changed from Movable Type to WordPress. At the time, I said “I’m not sure if I think blogrolls are all that useful anymore.” That statement came from the brief time when the blogroll served as the primary navigation to the sites I followed. This was a tedious way to keep up with more than a handful of sites. Fortunately, it didn’t take long to discover RSS and start using a news reader (I think NetNewswire was my first one). Newsreaders are wonderful and I, for one, am happy RSS isn’t dead.
