馃憢 Hello! Welcome to my clippings collection.

This site is a place where I share a (non-comprehensive) feed of what I've been reading + my annotations/highlights of those webpages.

I don't agree with all of the articles I clip to this page. In fact, I don't even guarantee that they're interesting! The purpose of this site is to "learn in public", in case anyone else finds my breadcrumbs interesting or useful.

If you've read any of the clippings, you might be wondering "why the heck is the formatting so screwy?" Well the answer is because every single post on here is something I read on the internet that I clipped with the Evernote web clipper into a notebook, CSS and all. It's not always pretty.

Enjoy!
Devon
