Please send him email at email@example.com.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

Still better than Afghanistan
The fatwa department of Afghanistan's supreme court has recommended that two journalists from a weekly newspaper that published articles some people consider blasphemous be put to death.This isn't happening in a country like Israel, which the Public Committee Against Torture in Israel has recently said is now regularly torturing Palestinians, that merely gets aid from the United States, but rather a country that is run by the U.S. military more than any other government.
The Bush Administration probably won't go that far inside of the U.S. but not for any reason of principle.
