  1. Jay Porter | Observations From A Tipless Restaurant, Part 1: Overview

    I didn’t bookmark this when I read it, but it keeps springing to mind. All parts are worth a read, on the nature of restaurant tipping, differences between good and bad waiters, the male patron / female waiter relationship, etc. (via Kottke)

    Shots of Rohan Silva staring intently at a blank MacBook as he pretends to listen to an interviewee who isn’t there or anywhere. #newsnight

    “A flavour of what might be in our future.” This must be @stml coming up on Newsnight…

    @pkqk Phew, a lucky escape!

    @tomstuart 60% OFF! REDUCED! (Felt obliged to follow that tweet up with this, just for you.)

    Faced with 60% off Heston’s mince pies in Waitrose I stuck to my “No mince pies until December” rule. I must be unbearable to live with.

    A social media pat on the back for @pkqk’s day of successfully debugging a fatal but very silent bug.

    @mattsheret @iamdanw Yeah, BFI. Or somewhere else with seat booking (like Barbican) and turn up 15 minutes late. A gamble though.

    @pkqk @alicebartlett You should see what Shashi says about you! He’s all “be happy and prospering” but he’s quite a mouth on him.

    @alicebartlett @bergcloud Aww, and I thought me and Shashi had something special going on!
