  1. Sheetsee.js

    “A JavaScript library, or box of goodies, if you will, that makes it easy to use a Google Spreadsheet as the database feeding the tables, charts and maps on a website.” (via Infovore)

  2. Jonathan Coe reviews ‘The Wit and Wisdom of Boris Johnson’ edited by Harry Mount · LRB 18 July 2013

    Very good on the futility, even dangerousness, of political satire and dismissing politicians as corrupt buffoons.

  3. Loopy Ideas Are Fine, If You’re an Entrepreneur | Pedestrian Observations

    Good on the vagueness and unreliability of the Hyperloop plans, and also on America’s willingness to unquestioningly think successful people can succeed at anything they fancy.

    @spaceboy I’m been with Tuffmail.com for a few years. @hondanhon recently switched to Fastmail.fm. Both cost money.

    @danjwilson: @philgyford Replace slashes in the path component with colons, prefix with “spotify:” and paste into the app’s search field.”

    @danjwilson Oh yes, thanks. What a brilliant, intuitive piece of UI!

    @whoisdanw “save the playlist”?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Given a URL for a Spotify playlist, I can’t work out how to see the playlist in the Spotify desktop app. Is it me or Spotify that’s stupid?
