Stephen Sedley in the LRB comparing an intrusive media to a snooping state.
Photos of the work of Max Roberts on the tube map. Photos, rather than decent graphics unfortunately. Can’t find better versions of his stuff online, so london-tubemap.com “wins”.
I like the original, but this compromise does feel more usefully connected to the geography of the city, rather than a complete abstraction. (via @benhammersley)
@kevinthom Oh yes, TypePad AntiSpam has blocked thousands of comments, but some have obviously found loopholes.
@blech If I was able to compare the two, maybe I wouldn’t like london-tubemap.com as much :)
More than one comment spam per minute until I got in to turn commenting off. Haven’t seen it that bad for a long time. Anyone else?
Grrr. I think it’s the sudden increase in comment spam that has made my install of Movable Type, and my server generally, unreachable. Hate.
@antimega I like it. Shame I can’t compare easily with Roberts’ work online. A few photos of his maps on IanVisits: http://bit.ly/lycszf
@_ralph I’m sure. But just because it’s an effort doesn’t make the statistics more in your favour unfortunately.
@_ralph I didn’t apply for tickets.
Can’t help thinking people endlessly moaning about Olympic tickets haven’t grasped how 62 million people compares to the size of a venue.
“Waterstones and WH Smith expressed disappointment that the new Potter material would not be available in physical books” Remember “things”?
