  1. SXSW 2010 for Futurists

    Some interesting things there, some of which might ease the pangs from the end of ETech. (via Tom Taylor)

  2. Information is beautiful: The BBC-O-Gram | News |

    Useful to get an overview of where the BBC’s money gets spent. Cutting 6Music and Asian Network doesn’t save much compared to the total.

  3. Burn a playable DVD from a VIDEO_TS folder - Mac OS X Hints

    Just works. I tried a couple of free GUI things, neither of which worked. This command line thing did.

  4. iClarified - Mac OS X - How to Setup Facebook Chat Within iChat

    I didn’t know you could do this. A bit odd having my “Facebook friends” (rather than my usual, “online” friends) there all the time. Plus they think I’m using Facebook *all day*.

    @mattb @gwire @blech Am I missing something, or am I just old? Data's always been plural hasn't it, unless you're sloppy and inaccurate...?

    Leaving the office, almost forgot to switch off the illuminated unicorn and fairies.

    On my way back to office #1 I involuntarily bought a Double Decker. I think @spaceboy is employed by the UK confectionary industry.

    Fixed-wheel bikes, audio cassettes, film cameras... it's going to be penny farthings, wax cylinders and daguerreotypes soon, mark my words.

    It's quite odd working in a large room of mostly quiet people, no music, plus one chap who makes many phone calls with a very clear voice.

    @stml Also, $200 bike rental?! Sounds a lot for a few days unless you'd otherwise be renting a car or getting lots of cabs.

    @stml If a bike's useful to get from wherever you're staying, then maybe yes. Otherwise, most places are within walking distance.

    Swum, breakfasted, a spot of work at office #1, now at office #2 for the day (and first in!).
