My Top 30 of 2008

As yet, in no particular order. I have to whittle it down to ten for my Zulu year-end list. Probably as my colleagues begin drawing up their lists, I'll remember some other things, too. there's even a chance that something will still come out this year that could wiggle its way on here, but probably not before my next-week deadline.

MORE ADDED! Now up to 41.
