  1. The Technium: 1,000 Years of Forgetting

    I often think how even the most famous people alive today won’t be remembered in the distant future. But more importantly… A BRILLIANT video from the year 3000!

  2. Charlie Brooker: why I love video games | Technology | The Guardian

    Not just interesting on why games are good, but on exactly how non-games-players get frustrated with them. Would be good to talk about that more.

  3. Visualizing empires decline on Vimeo

    Lovely visualisation of the expansion and contraction of four empires over 200 years. (via Long Now)

    @tomtaylor Cream of the Xmas playlist proved shorter than expected and Spotify only had half of them.

    It's that time of the afternoon when I usually seem to start what I actually meant to do today.

    @spaceboy Doesn't feel very Christmassy to me... needs more sleighbells.

    @megp Yes, I will somehow share whatever Christmasiness I can. (Hmm, S3FM.co.uk seems to be broken...)

    I'll do a Spotify Xmas playlist or something this afternoon, but for now, the Twelve Girls Band are hard to beat: http://bit.ly/6vTG3i Awsm.

    @blech Yes Low's 'Just Like Christmas' is one of my very favourite Xmas tracks! I have to force myself not to play it all year. Good choice.

    @spaceboy Not MY Christmas playlist, which is full of esoteric seasonal joy.

    @knackeredhack Thanks, but should have clarified... only really interested in pop, rock, rap, etc Christmas songs!

    Finally cracking open the Christmas playlist. Always welcome suggestions for good Christmas tunes I haven't heard before...

    Last night I dreamed I had better keyboard shortcuts for processing email. What a crazy dream world!

    Apologies for @gowalla/Virgin spam. Bloody Gowalla "helpfully" remembers your "spam Twitter with my check-in" setting from last time.
