This is pretty depressing. Five ideas that all involve using computers to measure everything to “improve” our lives. It’s a ruthlessly automated future, with no room for humanity, thoughtfulness, common sense, caring, vision, or true spontaneous innovation. (via @thomasfuchs)
@blogjam Their previous album, Firefox Explorer, was awesome! But I’d give their attempt at going classical a miss, Mosaic Opera.

@rooreynolds Didn’t mean to get at you specifically :) It was the aggregate communal, unthinking, growing rage.
@rooreynolds Fair enough. But “this isn’t explained well, I need more info” is different to “WTF sites x and y are blocked, fix this O2!”
@rooreynolds If you want your young child to be able to visit CBeebies etc, maybe a blunt tool is better than the mythical perfect tool.
Maybe people could do that one Google search before freaking out and demanding O2 fix this? Oh, no, it’s easier to tweet OUTRAGE!
O2’s ‘Parental Control’ looks like a setting for restricting access to kids’ sites. It’s not the default. o2.co.uk/support/genera…
The first day of two weeks off and I’m already happy and relaxed.
