Comments I've posted on other sites

  1. 10 years old on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    I remember at some point when BBC News changed its design and I said that it was crap that they…

  2. Technovia: Biofuels “a crime against humanity”

    I’ve been pretty well taken in by the organic food good, big corporation genetically modified food…


  1. Demonstration at St Pancras International, 14 - 11- 2007 — Camden Cycling Campaign

    One of the downsides of the new station: stupid little bike racks (obviously designed years ago by someone who never used a bike) a long way from anywhere useful.

  2. A MySQL Abstraction Class For PHP

    Sounds lovely, and probably better than the one of my own I’ve been using in various places for years. (via Infovore)

  3. What bugs me is not identity fraud but who will be watchdog to BBC’s Watchdog

    Funny piece by Toby Young about Watchdog’s Facebook identity theft scare mongering. (via ObLinks)

  4. Mudd up! » archive » Defending the Pig - Oink Croaks

    A nice defence and obituary for Oink, by an artist whose music was shared by people on the site. (via Infovore)

  5. Major pirate website shut down | | Guardian Unlimited Business

    This is even worse. Appalling reporting from Katie Allen, using FACT, Trading Standards and the British Video Association as her only source of quotes. (via Haddock)

  6. BBC NEWS | England | Tees | Huge pirate music site shut down

    The only sources of quotes are the police and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. Could we have a bit more balance perhaps BBC?

  7. Donnacha DeLong: The Journalist article

    Another dumb NUJ versus the forces of progress article. Established media is authoritative and experienced. Normal people are sometimes inaccurate. Therefore “Web 2.0” is bad. (via Haddock)

  8. The NUJ’s blinkered approach to online : October 2007 : Shane Richmond : Technology : Telegraph Blogs

    Brilliant dissection of a dumb article about the effect of new media on the role of journalists’. (via Haddock)

    "Happiness through efficiency" sounds like a Nazi slogan but it describes the rate at which I've been GTDing tasks the last couple of days.

    I'd forgotten that sweaty, wobbly, post-acrobatics nausea. At least it's out of the way on Mondays this year.

    Still saddleless so making the most of the bright morning and walking to college.
