Monday’s Link Roundup.

The highlight of this Monday’s Link Roundup is Danny and Annie. It’s a poignant and charming animated treatment of a couple’s years together. Do yourself a favor and watch it. You won’t be disappointed. For a simple, elegant way to view web pages check out Readability. I’m using it and it’s terrific.

  • Danny and Annie from StoryCorps. A lovely animated short. “Danny Perasa and his wife, Annie, came to StoryCorps to recount their twenty-seven-year romance. As they remember their life together from their first date to Danny’s final days with terminal cancer, these remarkable Brooklynites personify the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people when we take the time to listen.”
