  1. The Spy School

    Not-yet-made movie constructed from requested CCTV footage of the director. The plot could use some work I think.

  2. Topographic page layout

    A bookmarklet that uses background colours rather than borders to make a page’s HTML structure clear.

  3. Mobile Bristol - Queen Square - 1831 Riot!

    Walk around the square and a GPS-equipped iPAQ plays location-relevant historical sounds…

  4. The Early Films of Peter Greenaway

    Nice site by the BFI aobut his early shorts, The Draughtsman’s Contract and A Zed

  5. The Passion of the Christ (2004) - Film Review - Sight

    I believe Mark Kermode could find similarities between The Exorcist and every film ever made.

  6. Putting 40,000 Readers, One by One, on a Cover by David Carr (NYT, Registration required)

    A magazine will customise the covers of its subscribers’ copies with a satellite photo of their individual homes.

  7. Setting the maximum width of HTML/CSS elements

    I’m not quite convinced, but I may need to find this again at some point.

  8. Interesting Ian Jack article on how kids describe past events in the present tense

    Although it tails off into irrelevant self-indulgence towards the end.

  9. Interesting but impossible to read map of Hackney’s crime hotspots

    They make the mistake of emphasising ward boundaries — which no one outside local politics knows — over roads.

  10. These replacement iPod batteries really do the job

    I’ve just got 12 hours out of one charge, rather than the two I was getting before!
