Friends and Acquaintances

People are at the centre of my world, so it makes sense to organise a view of the Web around them. Of course it won't always be the case that people whose sites I find exceptionally interesting or who I happen to know personally (left- and right-hand columns, though there is overlap) will interest everyone who finds my own pages useful, but the annotations should let you make a reasonable guess.

This page covers people with static content. There is a separate list of blogs - and you might want to check out my own blog, Pathologically Polymathic.
