I notice that Compass Rose and Don't Worry About the Vase totally do
accept pingbacks! So maybe I should try this again sometime, but just
roll my own

hit everything I've ever linked.

that section is long enough. (I need to say more than I have
previously about why I think everyone is lying about AGP, but maybe
this post doesn't have to be super-exhaustive?) The function of a blog
is to be able to split writing into smaller chunks that can be
published in smaller units, rather than having to get a whole book
right on the first try; a mini-book-like megapost might be making a
bad trade-off.
