  1. The 3 key parts of news stories you usually don’t get at

    We get “What just happened”. We don’t get “The longstanding facts”, “How journalists know what they know” and “The things we don’t know”. Good stuff. (via Daring Fireball)

  2. Narcissism of small differences - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “The term describes the manner in which our negative feelings are sometimes directed at people who resemble us, while we take pride from the ‘small differences’ that distinguish us from them.” ‘Generation X’s Anti-Victim Device?

  3. GMapCreator, OpenLayers and OpenStreetMap

    “Get data from a shapefile onto OpenStreetMap using OpenLayers and the GMapCreator.” Example includes a method for using image tiles named with keyhole strings into something OpenLayers can use.

  4. Viewing Large Images – OpenLayers, GSIV, ModestMaps, DeepZoom, and Python « Itinerant Source

    Someone looking at different ways to display very large, pannable, zoomable images on the web.

    Finally got round to trying Trials HD. I fear my productive life is over. And marriage, career, social life, etc.

    I've spent over 100 hours on Pepys so far this year. More than 2.5 working weeks. Hmm...
