    I liked the drawing in a ‘New Yorker’ cartoon of this chap’s, Googled him, and lots of his other cartoons are funny too. Nice.

    Some nice laptop-friendly, pocket-laden backpacks, for future reference. (via Haddock)

    Graphs and charts showing how inequality and household debt in the USA have risen since 1980, especially compared to the more equitable period from 1945-80 (even though productivity was still rising then too). (via Daring Fireball)

    @alanconnor Yes. I loved the Bart t-shirt, and the “casket size” for some reason.

    @ethermole That sounds awesome! I’m so glad they improved Safari so much in Lion! Yes!

    @revdancatt Likewise. It sounds like it’s all grinding of one kind or another, and no way to do it faster than anyone else.

    @revdancatt Ha, folks in the office today were saying that stubbornness was all that’s required to win Tiny Tower too. Last one standing.

    @abscond Are you OK?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    To prevent further concerned queries: I AM FINE. Note to self: Don’t allude to feeling peaky on Twitter or people will think the worst :)

    If you do not think of the U.S. as in imperial power, imagine how you would feel if China had military bases in 68 countries including yours
