SLANTblog 2008 Sampler

Sarah Palin remembered

In the publishing business, whether mainstream or blogstream, this is the season for filling space with looks back at the year about to end, through the publisher's prism. At their best, such navel-gazing exercises give us a best-of overview of the year, a time capsule that puts some recent history into an entertaining perspective.

No need to remind anybody of how much time can be wasted on reading such exercises that are just more copycat stories, fluffed up again.

Rather than call what follows the best of what appeared under the SLANTblog masthead, or a time-line for the year, let's just say it's SLANTblog's sampler of 2008 snapshots, with some random notions and images tossed in that ask for a second glance.
