  1. Mallow street skyscraper - a photoset on Flickr

    Ridiculously huge skyscraper planned for right next to Old Street roundabout. Only a few days left to get objections in to the planning people. (via Haddock)

  2. David Hughes Illustration

    I loved his work when I was at college and he’s still going strong and has a new website. Excellent scratchy pen action. (via Drawn!)

  3. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself - Results for “grange hill”

    Fantastic amounts of time wasting. See especially “grange hill,old ,skool” (the “Just Say No” video).

  4. Afghanistan 2006 - a photoset on Flickr

    Real life Action Man (“with real typing fingers!”) Ben Hammersley is embedded with the troops in Afghanistan and taking some nice pics. Be careful Ben!

  5. LAPL Virtual Photo: Far and Wide

    Wonderful collection of 1920s and 1930s travel posters advertising exotic destinations like California, Bermuda and North Wales. (Click the little ‘Next Page’ link, bottom right.) (via Drawn!)

  6. LRB | letters from Vol. 28 No. 15

    I have a letter in the current London Review of Books. I fear they’ll rumble that my knowledge is based solely on Google and Wikipedia (I’ve never seen ‘Happy Days’).

  7. Clickdensity - website heat maps for usability and information architecture

    Interesting-looking thing for measuring where people click on your pages (although I haven’t tried it).

  8. Martin Wittfooth

    Lovely surreal paintings and drawings. (via Drawn!)
