Do-It-Yourself Memorial Day Linkfest

Saturday, May 24, 2008 | 04:30 PM

I hope everyone is enjoying their long holiday weekend -- I have the iPod charged up, the burgers ready to for the grill, some SPF 8, and lots and lots of weekend reading.

Since the linkfest is on hiatus, here's a fun suggestion: Use the comments to suggest your favorite link from the past 8 days (Sunday to Sunday). I'll see if I can't massage something together over the weekend out of them.

The rules are simple: Post the Headline, source name (in parens), a paragraph or two, and the full link. -- Be sure to put the link in the space marked URL; this way, your name will be the hotlink to the article.  Those of you comfortable with HTML can use this code <a href="URL-GOES-HERE">Title</a>

The rough proportions of content should be approximately:

70%: Anything Market, Economic, Investing/Trading, Federal Reserve, Sentiment/Psychology, Earnings/Valuation, Credit/Derivative or Housing related.

20%: Technology, Science, Media, War & Defense, Politics 

10%: Music, Film, Books Fun!


Bonus points goes to those who find really cool but overlooked articles. The trade-off is content quality always trumps obscurity of source (meaning, some junk is unknown for a reason).

That's the formula for my linkfest -- let's see if our crowd-sourcing do-it-yourself experimental fest generates anything interesting.
