  1. A Year in the Metabolist Future of 1972 — Failed Architecture

    Mostly good because it’s so nice to read architecture writing based on having spent a year living in the building. More of this kind of thing.

  2. CASH Music - The Secret Lives of Playlists

    On how record labels make and influence Spotify playlists. In case you want to feel a little bit used. (via Buckslip)

  3. Creative Alibis | Daniel Brook

    Being critical of Richard Florida’s Creative Class stuff. Impossible to tell when this was published. (via Buckslip)

  4. Django Service Objects

    I like keeping stuff like this out of views and models, and this seems like a nice way to do it. (via @simonwillison)

    @yegdup @samuelpepys I’m looking forward to it myself! And it makes for good (if drawn-out) drama to have a false alarm or two on the way :)

    @yegdup You’ve got more than two years to wait for the Great Fire I’m afraid. @samuelpepys is on 1664 at the moment.

    @whoisdanw “The thieves replaced the bell with a skewed sense of the nation’s importance, and the importance of London within it, and no one noticed.”

    @pixellent They are annoying. And they’re all writing on Medium!

    @infovore I like the idea - applause as a more specific meaning than like/favourite. But the graphic language doesn’t say “clap” to me!

    Teams of that era knew how to build pro-social spaces, they didn't know how to do was build massive scale advertising biz compatible ones

    I made a graph showing my past relationships. It has an ex axis and a why axis.
