  1. What was daily life like before almost everyone had cell phones? - Quora

    I love the responses to this question. I remember it all of course, and it’s not that long ago, but it still seems like another world. (via @tomcoates)

  2. Voices Of East Anglia: Inside the Oxford Street HMV Store in the Sixties

    Lots of great photos of what it used to look like. I love that sweeping staircase. (via @antimega)

    @megp @Zoonie Er, no - loads of people are tweeting it, quite understandably. I just saw an advertising opportunity there. MONEY!! :)

    @Zoonie Or use someone else’s photo. That’d do it too. Advertising’s easy! I should be a social media advertising guru!

    Advertisers: To ensure above-the-line campaigns also extend to social media, simply make an elementary maths error. It’s free!
