  1. Wilderness to brothels to Apple store: the History of Development in one block

    Very interesting, thanks. A nice lens for a long-term look at historical ebbs and flows. However,…



  1. BBC iPlayer - Click: 26/02/2011

    Pepys’ Diary gets a little plug around the 23 minute mark in the current edition of ‘Click’ on BBC News 24. (UK only I expect.)

  2. Sohei Nishino - Diorama map London (Detailed info)

    Stunning photographic collage photo-maps of cities. Currently at Michael Hoppen Gallery, SW3 3TD until 2nd April. (via Blech)

  3. Thoughts of a Bohemian » Blog Archive » The fire this time

    It’s not just digital archives that are being destroyed: The liquidator in charge of the defunct Corbis Sygma agency is planning to destroy an archive of 12 million photos. We need a real world Archive Team. Grrrrrrrrr. (via The Online Photographer)

  4. Wilderness to brothels to Apple store: the History of Development in one block

    I like this description of one spot of Manhattan and how it changed over the centuries. Although calling the block’s current state “the ultimate culmination of centuries of development” assumes nothing’s going to change ever again. (via @GreatDismal)

    Catching up on @shiftrunstop… I have that ‘The Unexplained’ with *that* photo of spontaneous human combustion on my desk. But I can’t look.

    Big headphones make chores bearable. Also, I can pretend I’m a Cyberman doing the spring cleaning.
