(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.

Proceedings of the Athanasius Kircher Society

Hands down, one of the most interesting, mind-boggling sites in the internet, Proceedings of the Athanasius Kircher Society is a group that catalogs and appreciates strange art and science. You'll learn about blind photographers, shrunken heads, messages in bottles, telegraphic snails and more. Nothing is too weird, not even the Australian man who typed to one million (in words and with one finger). Open up and say "wow" at www.kirchersociety.org.
