  1. One of today’s futures

    James Bridle’s ‘New Aesthetic’ has got me thinking about today’s futures again, rather than yesterday’s.


  1. HIUT — Our Town is going to make jeans again

    “Cardigan is a small town of 4,000 good people. 400 of them used to make jeans. They made 35,000 pairs a week. …our town is going to make jeans again. … Here goes.” Re-starting some British manufacturing.

  2. Remembrance of Links Past (Pinboard Blog)

    “About a quarter of [pages linked to from bookmarked URLs disappear] every seven years.” Not an exhaustive survey, but an interesting quick look at how quickly linkrot takes hold.

  3. Difference between geo and coordinates in status - Twitter Development Talk | Google Groups

    Coordinates vs geo vs place in the Twitter API. It’s not good when you have to read email threads to work out how to use a company’s API.

  4. Reeder for Mac (made@gloria!)

    This is the first feed-reading app I’ve ever got on with. Now Helvetireader is ceasing development this has won me over. It’s as lovely as the iPad version.

    @therealdoctoe But I love a couple of the characters and I'll keep watching!

    Reached episode three of 'Shadow Line'. I've now noticed the dialogue is frequently so bad and portentous that it's nearly unwatchable.

    @jamesweiner True, although it makes imagining and applying for “jobs” annoyingly difficult.

    @ianbetteridge “My final word on…” Oh, that’s claim chowder right there :)

    Facebook friend: "I just flew back from a Transformers convention and boy are my arms tires." I am ashamed to admit I laughed at this.

    Like meeting a sleeper cell from a more agreeable, funnier future.
