Why the weird title?
Ah, I thought something fairly esoteric would do nicely. While I was in college taking notes in my courses I would often have extra time to ponder things between useless verbiage a professor was using. Since, I didn't want to waste my thoughts I'd write them down right in the middle of the other notes. I needed some way to discern the class notes from my notes and so I marked a capital M in the margin next to any notes I made for myself. If I had had a particularly good idea I'd place a 5 pointed star next to the M. That way I could quickly scan back for those extra special pieces of information. On the computer it became asterisk M (*M) Hence the site is called *M. And so my online notes pay tribute to that tagging system I devised for the extra useful notes of mine.
