  1. Week 353

    Back on Project Humphrey after a break, and all is good.



  1. Final edition: Twilight of the American newspaper—By Richard Rodriguez (Harper’s Magazine)

    Lovely article that is more a reminiscence of a lost San Francisco and childhood than it is another “we must save newspapers” plea.

  2. Tea Party Lights Fuse for Rebellion on Right -

    interesting article on the “Tea Party” Right in America. Also scary. Hadn’t realised how much they had in common with crazy paranoid Patriots.

  3. jCarousel - Riding carousels with jQuery

    There are lots of things like this, but I’ve used this one and it seems very nice.

  4. Experimental Rockets at the Naze - Windows Live

    There was secret rocket testing going on at Walton on the Naze during World War II.

  5. Why records DO all sound the same | Word Magazine

    Fascinating account of the process of making an album/track and all the technological stuff that happens to the music these days. (via Tom Taylor)

  6. - Quick and simple image placeholders

    One of those things you didn’t know you needed until you saw it. Very handy. (via Infovore)

    @spaceboy @samuelpepys' court case is too laborious to fit into tweets. Business, not personal. You should read the full diary! #upselling

    @blech Because some cyclists think you're only a cyclist if you ride the right bike and see it as a way of life, rather than transport.
