The case for reimagining data | Public Strategist

Thanks for the kind words Mr Strategist. I don’t expect the site to be to everyone’s taste because, as you say, people read the news in many different ways. Hopefully it’s just right for a number of people who couldn’t find anything that satisfied them before. I expect there are other possible solutions for other groups of people who are currently not served well. There should be (and could be, thanks to the API) many different ways of reading the same content.

Better mobile phone action should be done soon — I’m working on it at the moment — although as I only have an iPhone, it’ll be luck if it also works well on Android…

  • 9:17pm: On plus side, kind words about @todaysguardian from @gruber, always nice http://✪df.ws/fkb (DF's never taken my @joyent shared server down.)
  • 9:08pm: 4059 photos transferred to Lightroom, 2189 to go. So much of my free time appears to be devoted to work-like data processing.
  • 8:28pm: @wonderlandblog I found the 3D distractingly amazing for a few minutes in Avatar. After that it just amazing. (Story etc another matter obv)
  • 5:08pm: Just turned down an opportunity to go and be photographed by someone who needs a person who looks like a cactus.
  • 1:18pm: @bruntonspall Thanks. Is there a time when the day's edition stops updating? Or a rough time when most/all new material has appeared?
  • 1:03pm: Wondering when http://www.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/all stops updating each day - it's changed a fair bit since 6am.
  • 11:16am: Ah, found the perfect time-filler: continuing to complain to publications about the use of "blog" to mean "blog post".
  • 11:06am: I've finished reading the Internet while waiting for Movable Type to rebuild this page. What do I do now?
  • 10:43am: @katylindemann "Forced viral"? Sounds alarmingly like the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment or something. Can't end well... http://bit.ly/aHKyRF
  • 10:27am: I am automatically spamming Twitter from a new social spamming service. Why don't you spam Twitter? Sign up now and win some Twitter spam!
  • 7:32am: Wow, Twitter woke up cranky this morning didn't he. Seeing double, triple, etc? Maybe you should think about easing off on week nights Mr T?
  • 7:30am: @spaceboy Do other countries do the same? I can't quite see an American or Brazilian flag with "USA" or "BRASIL" plastered on it.
