  1. LRB · John Lanchester: It’s Finished

    Very long but very worth reading, on the collapse of the banks. One day I hope there’s a book called “John Lanchester Explains Everything”.

  2. YouTube - Google Wave Developer Preview at Google I/O 2009

    I finally got round to watching this demo. I rarely need collaborative tools and I like plain text email. And yet this really looks like the future. Worth setting aside some time to watch until the end.

    But am alarmed the BBC Chart Blog mentions "your mum" watching Flashdance and "your dad" listening to the Verve. Feeling old.

    Catching up with the excellent BBC Chart Blog when I should be going to bed.

    @megpickard Didn't @tom_watson step down a few days ago?

    Phew, he just needed an extra pair of hands for a minute. I had visions of a kitchen filling with water.

    The plumber in the kitchen is swearing a lot. This can't be good.
