The posts on Small Thoughts have long been extensions of things I see on the web. Here's where I see them:
www.gizmodo.com (I'll rant about Engadget at some point).
market/finance blogs including RortyBomb, Seeking Alpha, etc.
news sites: CNN, NYTimes
And here's where I hear them:
Slate Daily Podcast
The Moth Podcast
That's basically my media stream. What you see here are reactions to that rather than thoughts 'ex nihilo' - from nothing. If you're confused, it might be because people routinely say sui generis thinking "That sounds like genesis..." when what they mean is ex nihilo.
