  1. YouTube - The Late Edition - Britain’s Own War On Christmas

    Watch for the first 2 minutes 30 seconds rant about Christians complaining that “Christianity is under attack”. Brilliant. (via Haddock)

  2. Locating Postboxes -

    Matthew Somerville’s new thing — help locate post boxes for OpenStreetMap etc.

  3. Citadel Miniatures

    Proof that large chunks of my memories will sooner or later appear, scanned, online. Fantastic.

  4. David Foster Wallace (Harper’s Magazine)

    Harper’s have put all their DFW writing online. ‘Shipping Out’ is one of my favourite reads. (via Kottke)

  5. 43 Folders: Time, Attention, and Creative Work | 43 Folders

    This post and a couple of other recent ones by Merlin Mann about his refocusing have been really inspiring. Great stuff. (via Kottke and Daring Fireball)

  6. The School Of Life - Homepage

    “A new cultural enterprise based in central London offering intelligent instruction on how to lead a fulfilled life.” A religion without religion? Intriguing. (via Kottke)

  7. Winner of the Personal Visualization Project is… | FlowingData

    Oodles of pretty and obsessive charting of personal data. (via Boing Boing)

    Walking home. Kids Love Lies were awesome. I feel young again. But we were probably the only people who didn't know someone in a band.

    At the Cross Kings to see Kids Love Lies, Pocketbooks and whichever youngsters are playing now. Fab place, but we feel a bit old and square.

    Already bumped into two separate friends. London feeling pleasantly small.

    After a couple of hours the novelty of the whirring hydraulic crane cleaning the windows the office across the road is wearing off.
