  1. Article Skimmer

    NY Time’s prototype news viewer. Nice idea but it equalises the importance of all but one of the stories. I want a newspaper to tell me what it thinks is important (even if it’s wrong). Otherwise it’s not a newspaper, it’s a database.

  2. Datamoshing

    This stuff is awesome… ten years ago we wouldn’t be able to see this as anything but an ugly mistake. In a couple more years it’ll look really dated. It’s now, yesterday’s future here.

  3. Child’s-eye view of Edwardian Ipswich - Evening Star 24

    Part one of my grandad’s memories of growing up in Ipswich in the early 1900s.

    500ish comments on Pepys' Diary truncated by encoding errors in an old database move. Someone's marked them for me. My job to correct them..

    @dotcode Who was it twittering about being unable to cope with FTP the other day... Oh yes, I remember. Have you mastered Notepad yet?
