  1. xkcd: The Pace of Modern Life

    Quotes from 1871 to 1915 about the increasing pace of modern life. (via Kottke)

  2. Cañas

    Chris Heathcote’s started an occasional email about food out and about. London so far, but he does travel, so you never know. Really good.

  3. Online JSON Viewer

    I keep forgetting this URL. Useful because it’s much less picky about formatting input data, so it will nicely format things like Ruby objects I’ve printed to the logs even though they’re not JSON. (@infovore has now pointed me at pp and awesome_print, thanks!)

    @joroach For not having to wade through muddy, dark, dangerous, litter-strewn tracks to get to the office? For one.

    @harikunzru I had to watch on iPlayer just to see that expression… a shame there was no close-up.

    @pixellent @mildlydiverting What she said... Perception one can only be a “success” if you do all that business politicsy stuff is nonsense.
