  1. Travel Back In Time With Yahoo! Maps | Londonist

    Yahoo’s (and therefore Flickr’s) aerial photos are about a decade old. Watching Yahoo slowly stagnate and decay and crumble is like seeing a once-excitingly new part of town become a ruined no-go zone.

  2. A 53% Surge in Poverty Rate Is Reshaping Suburbs - NYTimes.com

    I’ve thought for years, decades, that when sprawling suburbs with few through roads stop being comfortably wealthy, their unlivableness is going to be horribly apparent. Dead ends in two senses.

  3. I cite: End of #OccupyWallStreet: conflict over drummers

    @mattsheret Nah. I had a lie in with a headache. Now playing Gang of Four to wake myself up.
