  1. Notes.husk.org. The City Of London Highwalks.

    Paul Mison’s starting some writing about the raised pedestrian walkways in the City of London. Good stuff.

  2. Last.fm + Spotify + Find new albums

    Find albums by your top artists on Last.fm that have recently been added to Spotify. Although many are albums I already have, which is how I’ve listened to them on Last.fm… (via Tom Taylor)

  3. Jorn Barger, the NewsPage Network, and the Emergence of the Weblog Community | Tawawa.org

    Fascinating history of the early days of weblogs, with a prominent place for Dave Winer’s NewsPage stuff, which I remember being important to me (the Haddock Directory started on Userland Frontier in 1997). (via Preoccupations)

    Lying on the sofa, surfing for music between Radio 2 and 6 Music, reading CodeIgniter docs. All is well.

    Had I been up to date with my feeds I would have been with the cool @bldgblog kids. Instead I've reached 99.5% completed on this project.

    @zzgavin (a) Like I could tell the difference (or care enough), and (b) I don't want to store more useless plastic. Just give me bits.

    Doh. Just ordered three albums online. Checked out. Realised I'd ordered "CDs" rather than downloadable music. I have to *wait* to listen?

    Somehow managed cycling home -> Vauxhall -> Shoreditch -> home without getting wet. Close.

    About to head to a meeting on the bike. I predict a soaking on the way home. At least I won't be standing on a plinth when the rain comes.
