One dimensional news

I’ve been meaning to write a follow-up about my Today’s Guardian and its accompanying blog post, looking at why it’s still not an ideal solution for reading an online newspaper. Before I managed to write that the Guardian’s iPad edition came out, which is well worth a discussion of its own. But first, a look at the problems my Today’s Guardian doesn’t solve.

  • 08:50am: @Jonathan_Fry Thanks! The diary text is from Project Gutenberg, the same as I use on
  • 10:50am: I wrote a look back at my Today’s Guardian site, and the fundamental design problems it shares with all digital news:
  • 11:11am: @tobybarnes I never got the hang of Flipboard... too many things I wasn’t interested in or had seen elsewhere. Maybe I should try again?
  • 11:12am: @tobybarnes Also I’m coming from the perspective of wanting to read lots of news, rather than browsing, which seems to be Flipboard’s forté.
  • 05:25pm: At least the police presence on Finsbury Square might stop all the cyclists going the wrong way, or on the pavement, on its south side.
  • 07:11pm: @ianbetteridge That is quite special isn't it. I always thought drumming circles were a terrible thing, only enjoyed by their participants.
  • 08:34pm: I'm enjoying Thom Yorke's 6Mix. That's all.
