On an unrelated topic, I wonder whether this popping up in the front page is indirectly related to this comment  I posted here yesterday. Many, many times I read interesting comments on HN posts, forget about the topic, and a day or two later, another closely related post appears on the front page. I suppose these comments generate follow-up research that ends up in other interesting articles being discovered and shared. Is it just me? Have you observed this as well? Is HN actually becoming some sort of hacker collective consciousness?
I notice what you have noticed often. There are waves of a certain theme that clearly show other people posting things after researching something that they first saw here.

It also bothers me to treat upvoting "comments" this way.. I want it to stay under the "upvoted submissions" link on my profile. So I googled "computer graphics from scratch site:news.ycombinator.com" and upvoted the first submission that linked to your page.
I guess what I'm getting at is that method somehow feels wrong to me. Anyone have suggestions for "read-it-later" type bookmarks?
I've been blogging for wel over a decade for the audience of 1. He is perfectly in tune with the author and immensely enjoys everything I post. Sometimes the audience grows by 100% for a short while but after clicking around the categories and the insane amount of hierachic tags he never visits more than 5 citations.
It is highly amusing when he suggests to make the website even better. As if that is possible.
When google droped it I explained that I make the website and they may index it or chose not to. Their ideas how to improve the site and their attempt to force me was like they live on a different planet. They use to do organic ranking? I thought it facinating how they thought they could do that without accounting for my interests.
Point being: you want one of these websites just to have people (consumers) hate on it.
Do try to keep the personal notes as if addessing an audience. When you read those 10 years from now you say out loud: woah this guy is clearly a genius. By that time your 20k "bookmarks" (from now on called blog posts) will have a search engine allowing you to swiftly deeplink buddies into your mind so that they can have conversations under it that become similar treasures the decade after that.
No link to my blog here :)
Something similar happened to me, so I started storing my bookmarks under revision control. I don't add to them too often, so committing & pushing is a process that reminds me to not bookmark things unless they're _really_ interesting.
Many, many times :)
U r special and unique. Just like everyone else...
