I don't know who Jason Kottke is, but I certainly won't object to being on his 2005 Rest of the Best links list. Apparently, he had over 100 "best of 2005" links but had to pare them down to make 'em fit. My identity theft adventure was pared.
Update: I'm told that Kottke was "one of the pyra guys before it became blogger.com". He's an "A-level blogger", whatever that means.
And in a related note:
I'm such a whore.
