  1. DNA/How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Internet

    All good, but particularly the points from “everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal.” Very good. (via Russell Davies)

  2. The Solitary Life of Cranes - 4oD - Channel 4

    A beautiful documentary about what it’s like to work as a crane driver, looking down on London. And you can watch it. Free. The Internet is good.

  3. New Media Knowledge - Channel 4 Education Launches Online Project Aimed at Teens

    This is what I’ve been working on at Somethin’ Else for a while. (via Alice)

  4. Welcome to our new story pages -

    Bravo for trying something a bit new. But it still looks cluttered, slightly baffling, has pop-under adverts… Feels like “LOOK AT ALL OUR STUFF!” rather than being easy to read/view. (via Daring Fireball)

  5. Helvetica: Old and Neue -

    I’ve never got round to looking up the differences between Helvetica and Helvetica Neue. Now I know. (via Daring Fireball)

    Maybe midnight wasn't the best time to start using an entirely new piece of software to start writing this important document.

    @russelldavies It's only the mild jeopardy just before the end of the show. Am looking forward to the heartwarming reunion and moral.

    @ianbetteridge You are the living epitome of the joke "Doctor, Doctor, it hurts when I do this." "Don't do it then!" :)

    @alicebartlett Yes, maybe annotate each ring with tiny writing summarising the year just passed.

    @alicebartlett They could tattoo the baldspot's edges onto the scalp annually, eventually leaving an effect like tree rings.

    It's all go, isn't it.
