(bits) by bill keaggy

Every week I used to find a cool weblog (sometimes a local St. Louis blog) or some useful, interesting web site from here or there and write up a brief on it for the Sunday Everyday section Tuesday Here and Now section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (I used to work there as Features Photo Editor). That's about it. Not much action here anymore. More of my stuff can be seen here: keaggy.com.

Architectural Ruminations

Andrew L W Raimist is a local architect working on a book about the accomplished Saint Louis modern architect Harris Armstrong, who died in 1973. Many of Armstrong's strong, beautiful residential, office and garden designs still grace the St. Louis region. Follow Raimist's research and ruminations (including lots of contemporary and archival photos) at remiss63.blogspot.com.

Pointless Website Blog

Why would you want to read "Pointless Website Blog?" Well, because it features pointless posts ruminating on the term hoosier and its many variations (Laduesier and Hoosieois, for example) -- and unimportant observations such as, "Wash U. can be a boring place if you don't find a way to entertain yourself. From 8:50 this morning until about 11:10, I amused myself by counting how many people wearing giant, face-consuming sunglasses I could find." Revel in the pointlessness at home.earthlink.net/~pointlesswebsite/blog/blog.html.

Flickr: Photo sharing

Store, organize and share your photos with www.flickr.com. By marking your pictures with descriptive tags, the site becomes very social, allowing you to search everyone's photos for keywords and themes, and comment on pictures you like (you can also mark photos as private to restrict access). For example, currently there are more than 12,000 photos tagged "St. Louis," 32,000 tagged "beer" and nearly 50,000 tagged "honeymoon." It's free to join, but there is an annual fee for enhanced memberships.
