The Anthologists:

Anthologies have the poten­tial to finally make good on the pur­pose of all our auto­mated archiv­ing and col­lect­ing: that we would actu­ally go back to the library, look at the stuff again, and, holy moses, do some­thing with it. A col­lec­tion that isn’t revis­ited might as well be a garbage heap.

I dig the notion of this com­ing to pass. Between Twitter favorites, Pinboard, Instapaper likes, and links on this blog I some­times won­der what per­cent­age of things I mark will actu­ally be seen again. Something I need to get bet­ter about doing.
