About the code I wrote to make Twelescreen, and what else it can do.
I made a big-screen Twitter client devoted to showing Tweets from the UK and US governments and security forces because the Tweets seem scary.
The University of Sheffield’s planning archive has been digitised and put on Flickr. Post-war town and regional planning porn. (via @benterrett)
@fortyvenus I’m happy to do one, but I don’t know enough to know which twitter accounts it should show.
@tomcoates Well I’m at work *now*. And I’m going out later. I’ll watch it someday. Or I might not, if that’s more annoying? :)
@tomcoates I didn’t even know there was one until you mentioned it.
@blech Yeah, baffles me. I *think* I’m doing everything right, and I want it to just give up if it fails, but often… no. Just sits there.
@mildlydiverting I said David Cameron, not @chrislunch. HA HA!
@mildlydiverting Yes, that’s the kind of thing I was going for. Only with David Cameron’s smiling face.
@phl Thank you. The vertical centring gets progressively worse in older browsers, but otherwise seems OK!
In related news, I’ve made a customisable, theme-able, self-hosted, big-screen Twitter web app. More on that here: gyford.com/phil/writing/2…
