  1. How To Make Your Own Books From Wikipedia | MakeUseOf.com

    Couldn’t be easier. (1) Create a Wikipedia account. (2) Add pages to your book. (3) Download a PDF or order a bound copy. Very, very good.

  2. Wikibooks

    How have I not seen this before? “Wikibooks is a Wikimedia community for creating a free library of educational textbooks that anyone can edit.” Nice.

  3. Wrong Tomorrow - pundits vs. time

    A fabulous way to record what predictions pundits make and keep track of how often they’re wrong (or right; you never know).

  4. Dave Gorman: When Twitter Gets Weird…

    On how offended some people apparently get if you don’t follow them back on Twitter. Craziness. (via Meg Pickard)

  5. SprogBlog: more than numbers

    My awesome friend Annie on a week shadowing a midwife in Uganda. In case you need to put your life in some perspective.

  6. Home Page | Flat World Knowledge

    Creative Commons licensed textbooks, written by “experts” and peer-reviewed, which are then free to read online (or pay for a printable version). Little available right now, but promising. (via Preoccupations)

    The Apprentice's "make the most profit in a day" theme epitomises all the wrongness of business.

    Lots of police, lots of security, lots if press, lots of crowd barriers, two protestors in drag. That's all near Liverpool St.

    Evan Davies just walked past me. Now, back to war-torn east London and my current base, the Schulze Armitage Webb cave.

    Hoping The City will still be standing when I return from a meeting in White City.
