Links

  1. Blissblog - 10 for 2010

    Simon Reynolds’ top records of the year. So much to listen to. (via Warren Ellis)

  2. Memolane | Your time machine for the web

    Currently invite-only, and I’ve not tried it, a thing for aggregating and/or archiving your stuff from various web services.

  3. Said the Gramophone: BEST SONGS OF 2010

    I have completely failed to keep up with this or any other music blog this year. Again. But StG’s end of year lists are always good.

  4. Coding Horror: So You’d Like to Send Some Email (Through Code)

    Things you should do when sending email via code. (via Daring Fireball)

  5. Isle of Tune

    Really lovely thing for making music out of cars driving round a pretty isometric road layout. Worth firing up Flash for. (via Kottke)

  6. Adactio: Journal—Home-grown and Delicious

    Yes, I’ve been thinking this self-hosting-with-syndication model is the way to go. I don’t use Delicious’s social features at all, but if I self-hosted my links I’d still like them to be viewable by others in my network, if they’re interested. (via @preoccupations)

  7. More4 cuts back The Daily Show to one episode a week | Media | guardian.co.uk

    But! What? Grrr! May have to get a Witopia VPN again so I can watch the Daily Show online. What kind of media industry is this where I find myself paying $40/year to circumvent region protection in order to watch a TV show? (via @megpickard)

    Just watched last ‘Misfits’. So good. How do they manage to shift tone so completely and rapidly and often and have it all still work?!

    @gilest @jah was asking the exact same question a little while ago: http://j.mp/gQCKyz Don't know if he found a good solution...?

    @Mike_Corso Ever thought of doing a Cool Site Of The Day twitter account for 16 year old links? Using web.archive.org? It'd be great!

    Cool Site of the Day for 16 years ago, Smitty's UFO page: http://j.mp/i3xEja (This should be a daily tweet...)

    @brokenbottleboy Just seemed weird having identical tweets from both. Made AOL look a bit silly. But no big deal, sorry :)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @AOLTV_UK Ah yes, I see you were "sharing" @brokenbottleboy's tweets. But it does look like you're blatantly copying them. Why not retweet?

    @AOLTV_UK I kept seeing Apprentice tweets by you last night which copied slightly earlier tweets by other people.

    Not as cold as I expected out. Having a nice walk.

    TechHub is currently just a PR company producing misleading press releases. The idea they represent Silicon Roundabout is wrong.
