  1. Gmapicons - Google Maps Icons 

    URLs of all the standard icons.

  2. Society of the Spectacle (La Société du spectacle)

    Guy Debord’s film in full on Google Video, with English subtitles.

  3. Summary of China Rights Developments | Human Rights Watch

    Just in case you’re enjoying the Olympics so much you’ve forgotten all this stuff.

  4. The Orwell Prize

    George Orwell’s diaries daily, Pepys style. Lacking the year on each entry — too much ‘2008’ very little ‘1938’ around. Quite a random linking strategy in entries, but it’s early days.

  5. About The DiSo Project : DiSo Project

    Building social networking tools using open tools and standards, starting with WordPress. Not enough there for me to quite “get” it yet. (via Oblomovka)

  6. BuddyPress » About BuddyPress

    “The idea of BuddyPress is to take a standard vanilla installation of WordPress MU and turn it into something that represents more of a community building tool, or niche social network.” (via Oblomovka)

  7. Hong Kong’s Most Disturbing CG Illustrations « WITMOT?

    Hong Kong’s ‘Apple Daily’ makes computer images for news stories when there are no photos. Hilarious, especially if you scroll down to Morgan Freeman. (via Ted Mills)

  8. Facebook | I Know Hans Montanana

    A group for the music teacher at my old school. Reading the many enthusiastic posts… it’s like he’s the lead in a Hollywood movie about a teacher inspiring kids or something. Lovely.

  9. YouVersion | A Revolutionary Online Bible Reader

    All signed-up readers can contribute notes about passages from many different versions of the Bible. Quite complex but usable interface. (via TUAW)

    Having real difficulties getting up this holiday. Ah well, there are worse problems.
