We love the re-gifting ability of the Internet.  It was our delight and surprise to learn today Wired.com liked our Urban Semiotic article — What to Do With a Naked Chocolate Jesus — enough to link it from their article on Bioartists… way back on December 13, 2007 as you can see in the screenshot below.  The Urban Semiotic.com link from April 2, 2007, is the last words in the last sentence:


We love Wired and we’re happy to be a part of the link magic of that terrific website even if we’re a couple of years late in expressing that sentiment.

Creating connections online is one of the fascinations of publishing on the web. 

You’re never quite sure who is reading your stuff and liking it enough to link it — and yet that is the beauty of being on the internet:  You cast away thoughts, and some are caught, some are ice-picked, and others are thrown back into the ether to live again beyond you because of another’s momentum.

The exchange of thoughts are propagated in that momentum and in that
single, swinging, movement — new understanding is created — and we are
all made better by the arc.

  1. It’s always interesting to see who links to your articles. I once got a link from someone who was intrigued by my article about how cooking can be enjoyable.

    The person said that I was wrong and went on to critique the article. I posted a comment and he enjoyed that I actually found his article and commented on it!
    (Oddly, now I can’t find that article!)
