  • 07:59am: I'll need to watch 'Caine's Arcade' again, just to counteract all the grumpy ranting Twitter delivered to me this morning. Twice.
  • 04:55pm: I wrote this, poking at the idea of whether we’ve created Instagram’s value by posting our photos: http://t.co/wm12Iili
  • 05:00pm: @holgate A pleasure. For once something nagging at my brain coincided with a moment of feasibly spare time at the computer.
  • 06:13pm: @rooreynolds Yeah, I eventually went from intrigued to creeped out. Opting out of a bunch of ad networks has helped: http://t.co/ZFZIJGwy
  • 06:58pm: @iamdanw @jonty A similar system was invented in 1927 http://t.co/ZtavjQ46 (plus my photos of the Barbican’s http://t.co/PugBJEon )
  • 07:02pm: @jonty I think the Barbican Estate Office organised it, but I don’t think I’ve heard of them doing so since.
  • 07:03pm: @jonty I think the system is only used by a minority of flats now. Not very eco-friendly and can be smelly.
  • 09:26pm: HTML/CSS/JS for Client 1; to Greenwich for ace Client 2 meeting; to office; fixes for Client 3; blog post; home; 4 Whit Stillman blog posts.
