Links from September 2010
- Links for Wednesday 1 September 2010
- Social Media Icons — Paul Robert Lloyd
- Handy sometime I expect. Standardised icons for services, in four sizes.
- Links for Thursday 2 September 2010
- The Online Photographer: Mike's Darkroom
- I've been really enjoying these posts about constructing a darkroom. Not because I want one, but because reading about the layout decisions made by someone with lots of experience is fascinating. There's so much a novice would miss.
- Philgyford's mytweets at master - GitHub
- I updated Simon Willison's "Script for saving a JSON archive of your tweets", which Blech and others have added to since, to use OAuth.
- Put up or shut up - Roger Ebert's Journal
- 24 per cent of Republicans believe Obama is the Antichrist. The Antichrist. Hard to know where to start, but I guess Ebert's thoughts are a first step. Today, I am liking Britain.
- NFLUK.com - News List - Football's coming home to Channel 4
- Channel 4 gets Sunday Night Football. I'm very glad there's some free-to-air NFL again, but am amazed deals like this are only finalised a week before the season starts. I hope the presenters are as good as Five's were.

- ...and the 'blog' you rode in on
- Found this lurking on my hard drive from, perhaps, the "middle-early ages" of blogging.
- Links for Tuesday 7 September 2010
- Magazero |
- A new online store for fairly obscure/"independent" magazines started by Ivan Pope. He plans to do Stack-style subscriptions soon. (via Warren Ellis)
- Links for Wednesday 8 September 2010
- A unified theory of New York biking | Analysis & Opinion |
- Yes, yes, yes. The same for London too. Cyclist vs car and cyclist vs pedestrian conflicts arise because cyclists act more like pedestrians (ignoring rules) than cars (which by and large obey rules). (via Kottke)
- Dcramer's django-sentry at master - GitHub
- Looks nice, haven't used it. "Sentry provides you with a generic interface to view and interact with your [Django] error logs."
- BLDGBLOG: Predisposed
- More on that "how to tell future generations about dangerous things" problem. Fascinating stuff.
- Links for Friday 10 September 2010
- YouTube - Being a Dickhead's Cool
- It's like Nathan Barley - The Video, ten years on. Very good.
- Links for Sunday 19 September 2010
- Snoopy | View-source bookmarklet for iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices
- Very handy. Also rather nice on desktop browsers too. (via Tim Brayshaw)
- A Place to Remember Loved Ones | 1000Memories
- Interesting - create a site about someone who's died. But... feels a bit clunky and like "make a database about someone you love".
- Musopen raises $40,000 to set classical music "free"
- Love this - raising money via Kickstarter to hire orchestras to record copyright-free versions of classical music. (via Waxy)
- Free Andrew Loomis Art Intstruction Downloads « Escape From Illustration Island
- Some lovely old copyright-free books on figure drawing as PDFs. (via Ministry of Type)
- My First Week with the iPhoneBehind the Curtain | Behind the Curtain
- I've seen this ecstatic report by a blind person about their new iPhone linked to from a few places. Forget your iPhone-fatigue and skip to the last few paragraphs where he describes using an app (Color ID) which speaks the colours the device's camera "sees". Beautiful.
- Links for Wednesday 22 September 2010
- Let Charles be Charles | Planetizen
- In the comments, Dan Hill versus New Urbanists. Interesting. (Comments are in an odd order and the reordering widget doesn't seem to work.)
- Links for Monday 27 September 2010
- Bkkeepr | Track your reading and bookmark on the go
- I either didn't know James Bridle had done this or I'd forgotten. Bad of me either way. It's very nice. A bit like LibraryThing, but you add/track/bookmark your reading via Twitter.
- America, My New-Found-Land by Tony Judt | The New York Review of Books
- I enjoyed this piece on how alluring America is to a European.
- Links for Tuesday 28 September 2010
- Formulatepro - Project Hosting on Google Code
- Need to add an image to a PDF, which Preview doesn't do, and you don't have Adobe Acrobat? This does the job nicely, for free.
- I’m done building Facebook apps for clients | Ryan Waggoner
- Yes, this. I've only done Facebook Connect stuff, not built actual FB apps, but, it's unpleasant and frustrating. Stick to the Web.
- Hacker News | I’m done building Facebook apps for clients
- More people discussing the frustrations of developing for Facebook.
- Links for Thursday 30 September 2010
- Lovely kind of cross-section of psycho-geographic-neighbourhoods or something. I'd love to see lots more of these. (via Tom Taylor)
- Git ready » learn git one commit at a time
- Very handy collection of git tips. Enough information to make sense, not too much to confuse.
