Hi -

I decided to *be bold* and create a tumblr. My problem with delicious is 
that it's not used by a lot of people (me included), it's not that 
aesthetically attractive, and you can't organize it on the public RSS 
feed with keywords like you can tumblr (and I could be wrong about that).

Check this out:


I can change the URL name of course. I also created it so that people 
can submit their case studies, then, it's submitted for approval by the 
moderator (which at this time is me, which is fine with me at this time).
