If you look to your right, you should notice that I’ve finally gotten around to updating the Troppo Armadillo blogroll for the first time in six months or so. As far as I know, I’ve updated the addresses of everyone who’s moved premises in that time. I’ve also added quite a few new blogs, and deleted some dead ones. My policy on the latter has been to delete blogs that have announced their own demise, as well as those where no posting has taken place for at least 6 months or so.
As far as new blogs go, I haven’t adopted an even slightly diligent or systematic approach. I’ve simply added those that immediately occurred to me. The general TA policy has always been to list as many Australian blogs as possible that have an even partly political or legal flavour, unless they’re so utterly obnoxious that I can’t bring myself even to acknowledge their existence. So if your blog doesn’t appear at right, it’s probably because I’ve forgotten you exist or never knew in the first place. So feel free to send me an email at email@example.com, and I’ll add your blog next time a strong enough pang of conscience coincides with a lack of unavoidably urgent academic tasks (which may well be another six months or so).
PS – I also promised to promote a political humour site called Bald Monkey, which seems to be associated in some mysterious way with an ex-CDU law student whose name I can’t reveal on pain of death.
PPS – One very significant blog that I overlooked in my update is that of the formidable Tim Lambert. (via David Tiley) Tim published a superb post yesterday, further exposing links between the tobacco industry and mega-dodgy Steve Milloy of Junk Science.
