(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.

Give Me Back My Google

We love using Google's search engine to find products but we don't care for all the comparison shopping sites that clog the results without giving any extra useful information. G.M.B.M.G. removes those sites from Google's search results. Check it out: www.givemebackmygoogle.com.

JPG Magazine

Created in 2004 by the husband and wife team of Derek Powazek and Heather Powazek Champ, the magazine's goal is "to honor the fantastic work coming from nonprofessional photographers all over the world."
