Quickish is a new site offering "real-time-ish" short-form sports news and analysis links, gathered and recommended by the site's proprietor, Dan Shanoff. Link suggestions from readers are welcome. NiemanLab interviews Shanoff. If his name sounds familiar, it's because he used to do the Daily Quickie on ESPN.com.

It's nifty but why don't they link back to the original sources? All the links I can see are to tagged content on Quickish itself.

But the NiemanLab story suggests that links are the lifeblood of the site so I must be missing something here.

What the world needs is a way to get more and smaller and faster info-snacks!

The text quoted is supposed to be the link to the original source; for a while, the Deadspin story about BYU which was at the top did not link as the rest were.
