  1. Live blogging the general election | Media | The Guardian

    I think this was the most useful, interesting, to-the-point, immediate, high-signal, and simply best news media I’ve experienced in a long, long time. (via Simon Willison)

  2. Bristol news | Video: Inside Bristol’s biggest ever cannabis factory

    Video of inside a cannabis factory in a former NatWest bank right on Bristol’s East Street. Impressive.

  3. Twitterature: When Moby Dick Became The Fail Whale « Black Clock

    I took part in an online chat thing about Twitter literature a while back, mainly because of @samuelpepys, but I also mentioned E4’s Misfits.

    Nice, and funny, typeface-choosing flowchart. (via Haddock a while back)

    @blech The Bloosmbury contraflow was in use before I went on holiday three weeks ago. Is very nice. I do like new road layouts.

    Received a left luggage receipt in the post from a stranger. Off on a #mundanebourne adventure.

    @antimega How dare you sir! I've been wearing the same kind of jeans since the Tories were last in power! Also, I have a belt.

    Two middle-aged men on Hoxton Square complaining about how their new, trendy jeans keep falling down and don't fit their paunches.

    @spaceboy Or Ruby, just up Charlotte Road, for great hot sandwiches or pasta.

    @spaceboy BLT Deli, on the corner with Curtain Road, for a wrap or soup or big dish of meat.

    @maxgadney @moleitau There was a (not very funny) Klegg/Clegg comparison on the Guardian a few days ago: http://bit.ly/9MJSyb

    @phl PNGs in FF/IE were the problem. I used ImageOptim on Mac to do PNGCrush compression and get rid of gAMA, sRGB, iCCP, cHRM. 90% fixed.

    In colour management hell. I just want *this* grey to look like *that* grey. Is that too much to ask?

    I know BBC2 have an 80s season going on, but isn't a Tory government taking transmedia promotion a little too far?
