  1. War Cabinet (ukwarcabinet) on Twitter

    World War II told daily in tweets and links to web pages where you can add free PDFs to your shopping cart, check out, give your email address, and finally download them. Nice idea, spoiled by execution. (via @blech)

  2. Modern Two-Party System in the Senate Timeline

    Fascinating and detailed graph of shifts in Republican/Democrat senators from 1857-2006. I’d love to see something similar for the UK.

    I just logged into Friendster. My friends all look so much younger and more attractive than they do on today's social networks!

    Last minute talks at ACAS have resulted in my feet calling off today's strike. Looks like I'll be able to get to work after all!
