  1. LRB · John Lanchester · The Great British Economy Disaster

    Another must-read. “This is a direct transfer of wealth from the taxpayer to the banks, and the only difference between it and an actual, physical licence to print money is that the banks don’t have a piece of paper with the words ‘Official Licence to Print Money’ written across the top.”

  2. A History of Obama Feigning Interest in Mundane Things — Daily Intel

    This is terrible - these “mundane things” are all science and engineering things which could be fascinating. It’s like the cool kids pointing and laughing at geeks.

  3. Raph’s Website » GDC10: Justin Hall, Fate of a Social Games Company

    Notes on Justin’s talk of his experience of GameLayers. i’m also a sucker for tales of start-ups. (via Alice)

  4. David Mamet’s Master Class Memo to the Writers of The Unit | Movieline

    I’m a sucker for writing tips, whatever medium they’re intended for. (via Daring Fireball)

    @blech Sounds like a grand night out to me!

    Started the day with a swim and a healthy breakfast. Continued it with a bacon sandwich, a burrito, and now cake. May have to roll home.

    @jwheare Thanks - I'm trying to just use the JavaScript API, rather than XFBML. Am making slow progress...

    I only want one complete, well-doc'd example of using the Facebook Connect Javascript API for login. Not many partial ones. Am I weird?

    Once again, I am lost in a maze of twisty little Facebook Developer Wiki pages, all alike. Real, structured documentation would be a boon.
