- How I Built Emojitracker — Medium
- Brilliant write-up of the difficulties in developing what at first glance looks like a very simple site. Also, makes me pleased Twelescreen is simpler and less popular. (via Waxy)

- I learned from Quora that CodeIgniter is pretty dead and Laravel is a well-regarded, more modern, PHP framework.

- WHAT THE FLUCK!
- I know many people roll their eyes at Adam Curtis, but no one writes these wide-ranging stories like he does, illustrated with video. (Even if I can't watch the video because it's Flash.)
- The Historical Present - The Thread that Runs So True
- Leslie Harpold, who died seven years ago, on the web. "The web is made of people holding hands for safety muddling through the mazes of life, love, work, success, failure, and everything in between."

- Rap Stats | Rap Genius
- I love hearing songs that mention Internet things when they're still pretty new. A graph showing usage of social media brand names over time. (via Kottke)
- Anatomy of a failed rendition
- James, better than ever, digging into the network to track the plane, hired by the Home Office, that failed to deport a hunger striker, too weak to see or stand, from the UK. "...climbing and banking to avoid thunderheads and moral accountability."

- Online Scrum Tool / Agile Scrum Software
- Thought I'd saved this already, then couldn't find it. Nice-looking tool for scrum managing stuff, which can use GitHub Issues. Looks like it does more than Huboard.
- ExRx (Exercise Prescription) on the Internet
- A simple, comprehensive site of weight training exercises and lots more. So nice after all the sites full of "7 Days To Killer Abs!" articles. Started in 1999. Vintage. Old School. The best things.
- The Pedway: Elevating London
- I had some problems with this (eg, the commentators all have the same opinion, the shots of today's walkways make them look more derelict and deserted than they are) but it's still well worth a watch.
