Sockrotation is an attempt to curate, categorise and contextualise anything and everything I find interesting.
This blog is a place to store and share some of the fascinating things I find online every day in an ongoing attempt to identify what my real passions are by looking at the common themes and patterns behind the subjects that interest me the most.
I don’t promise consistency, but if you like the kinds of things you see here join me to discover more.
I also run a front-end-web-dev tumblelog at decodering.com. My primary Tumblr blog is foomandoonian.net, though sci-fi geekiness usually ends up at skiffy.tumblr.com. My portfolio blog thing is at geoff.at. For many years my main blog was halfblog.net, but I’ve stopped updating there now.
I also keep interesting links on Pinboard. Follow me there!
