Cityofsound: Stephen Gill and photographing the everyday invisible

I’ve only seen the two or three articles about Gill in the Guardian Weekend mag, but I’ve yet to be convinced… his collections just seem like picks from Flickr photo pools, and not particularly interesting ones at that. Am I missing something?

I’m afraid that’s nothing to do with the Barbican. It’s the Swiss Re building at 30 St Mary Axe. Or the “gherkin”.

The Barbican is made of concrete and is a complex of buildings a little further west.

Rodcorp: A visit to the Bank of England museum

This page http://eh.net/hmit/ppowerbp/ suggests that £22 in 1697 was worth about £1,909.97 in 2002. Only a very rough guide, and only one way of calculating it, but it’s better than nothing.

Jwz - that was, in fact, the final straw.

MacNoteTaker is a good way to sync text notes with a Palm: http://mac-huwis.lboro.ac.uk/~wis/programs/NoteTaker/NoteTaker.html

Uses plain text files in as deep a directory heirarchy as you like. Has its own notepad app on the palm and plain text files on your Mac. A bit cranky - To delete a note I think you have to do it on both devices. And it won’t do anything clever like merge changes, just overwrite the oldest copy with the newest one. But it’s nice to be able to just sync text files.

Rodcorp: Art, music and maps in London currently

The Grand Designs show that featured the construction of a Huf Haus did fuel the bit of me that wants to live in a huge and airy modern timber-framed house in the country. http://www.channel4.com/4homes/ontv/grand-designs/houses/S/surrey_huf.html
