  1. Exclusive: The Lego Minifig Timeline

    I think they started going downhill after 1986. Entirely coincidentally, that’s when I stopped buying them. (via Chris Heathcote)

  2. How people really use the iPhone - SlideShare

    Presentation on a company’s user testing with iPhones. One thing not mentioned: although some people made mistakes, did they immediately learn from them, or did they keep making the same mistakes? Big difference I think. (via Chris Heathcote)

  3. Main Page - John Peel Wiki - a Wikia wiki

    More Peel info than you could ever need. I had no idea there were quite so many tapes (now MP3s) of complete Peel shows in existence. (via Ted Mills)

  4. Alex is blogging, too: Tumblr Friendfeed Theme Release

    A theme for Tumblr that incorporates your Friendfeed stuff into a sidebar.

  5. Sprint: Plug into Now.

    Quite absorbing “dashboard” about the state of the world. Some of it’s obviously whizzy and not entirely factual. But I want one for me. (via Russell Davies)

  6. The Ladder at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre

    There’s been a ladder perched on a balcony at the church since at least 1835. Fascinating story. (via Haddock)

  7. Barack Obama: How He Did It | Newsweek Politics: Campaign 2008 |

    A series of seven articles about the campaigns. Worth a long read. (via Kottke)

    Finally transferring stuff from clunky old video cassettes into digital bits. Hoping to find some gems.
