  1. Kung fu grippe — Making the Clackity Noise

    “Make the clackity noise until a little story falls out. Just a little bit and just for a little while. Just until you notice one tiny, dumb, pointless story that the keyboard wanted you to remember.”

  2. If Britain decides to ban the burqa I might just start wearing one | David Mitchell | Comment is free | The Observer

    All wonderfully, beautifully sensible. “It’s not bigoted to disagree vociferously with people’s choices, as long as you’re even more vociferous in defending their right to make them.”

  3. A Vision of Britain through Time | Your national on-line library for local history | Maps, Statistics, Travel Writing and more

    This is interesting. Seems to be a collection of historic texts and maps and data, all searchable by location. Some nicely done stuff.

    Up to 85 messages in this Google Wave now. Increasingly difficult to find that message I know I saw the other day.

    @phl Those out-of-body experiences are *so* confusing aren't they!
