  1. ‘Where Good Ideas Come From’ by Steven Johnson

    My notes on the book.

Links

  1. Annotator | Open Knowledge Foundation

    Looks good. jQuery and python (or other backend) for annotating HTML pages. (via Infovore)

  2. How do sites prevent vanity URLs from colliding with future features? - Quora

    Just for the list of suggested blacklist terms that shouldn’t be allowed for usernames, so as to avoid future URL conflicts.

  3. Free Map of London (Communities and Open Space Survey) 1943 from the Probert Encyclopaedia Map Archive

    More precise than the previous 1943 map of London areas and/but very nice. (via Blech)

    One of the nicest things about both Fix and Look Mum No Hands is the routinely friendly, happy service. Inclusive, un-hipster.

    @schulze You know at the beginning of disaster movies... *everyone's* expecting a calm day then.

    @stml Welcome home! London has been crying in your absence. It should cheer up now you're back.
