  1. Hippy, capitalist, guru, grocer: the forgotten genius who changed British food | Food | The Guardian

    I only knew fragments of this story about Nicholas Saunders, Neal’s Yard, Monmouth Cafe, etc.

  2. When Hari Kunzru met Michael Moorcock | Science fiction books | The Guardian

    I must have read this at the time (2011) but I just came across it again, so.

  3. Alternatives to The Guardian - news | Ask MetaFilter

    Some suggestions but, unsurprisingly and unfortunately, there’s no one good leftish, UK-based, news source.

  4. Ruining a country near you soon: the beta males who think they’re alphas | Marina Hyde | Opinion | The Guardian

    I could link to every Marina Hyde column, so take this excellent example as a placeholder for all of them.

  5. Putting you in the picture: yes, you can earn a living on Instagram | Money | The Guardian

    After arguing about this… it annoys me a lot because I wanted the internet to give individuals the power of the media’s reach so they could share their thoughts, passions, views, etc, and didn’t realise they’d also ape the media’s more dubious methods of making money by shilling for brands.

  6. ‘We’re not leaving this bar until we’ve come up with such a great idea that I can’t sack you”

    Transcript of Tony Ageh at The Story Conference 2014. Really good, on advertising, The [Guardian] Guide, iPlayer.

  7. Corbyn in the Media - Paul Myerscough (London Review of Books)

    This is good on the Guardian being out of touch, in denial, with all those who voted for Corbyn, and on the “impartiality” of the BBC.

  8. There’s nothing sinister about Guardian stories going missing online | Open door | Comment is free | The Guardian

    A bug in the automated rights system led to a lot of articles disappearing. Another one for the “transitory nature of the web” file.

  9. The Guardian iPad App | The Ministry of Type

    A comprehensive, and very positive, overview of the user’s experience of the app’s design.

  10. The last spasms of a dying business model – Why the Guardian iPad App is a step into the past « The Tall Designer

    Criticisms of the Guardian’s iPad app, almost all of which I entirely disagree with.

  11. How the Guardian’s iPad app changed the way that I consumed news

    Martin Belam on the Guardian’s iPad app, and how it’s… well, it says in the title. (via Preoccupations)

  12. Discombobulated: Guardian iPad: Product challenges

    Jonathan Moore on the process of developing the new app, from a product point of view. (via Preoccupations)

  13. The Guardian iPad edition design evolution | Media |

    Images showing different stages from the process behind developing the new iPad app.

  14. Mark Porter » Blog Archive » New work: The Guardian iPad app

    His description of the design work behind the new app, which is very good indeed.

  15. Arab spring: an interactive timeline of Middle East protests | World news |

    This is nicer than my rash knee-jerk dislike of whizziness made me think. Works well as an overview and journey. There’s a bit of a disconnect between country names and events, and I want to see more time at once, but nice and clear otherwise. (via Max Gadney)

  16. Christmas on the high street: retail winners and losers | Business |

    2011’s award for ‘Most Pointless And Over The Top Use Of Flash’ has already been won by the Guardian! Horrifyingly hilarious. (via @dracos)

  17. Today’s News • on iPhone & iPad • Powered by the Guardian

    An iPad app that gives you a way to read The Guardian very much like my “Today’s Guardian” site. The sincerest form of flattery, I guess.

  18. TV drama: The Shield versus The Wire | Television & radio | The Guardian

    Chris Petit from 2008, for the bit on The Shield. “The Shield is reprobate, founded on moral ambiguity, driven by violence, lacking the core of good guys who police Homicide and The Wire … [it] is more like science fiction in its prediction of anarchic alienation and breakdown.”

  19. Ten rules for writing fiction | Books |

    Finally got round to reading this. Is good and interesting like everyone said in February.

  20. Live blogging the general election | Media | The Guardian

    I think this was the most useful, interesting, to-the-point, immediate, high-signal, and simply best news media I’ve experienced in a long, long time. (via Simon Willison)

  21. Information is beautiful: The BBC-O-Gram | News |

    Useful to get an overview of where the BBC’s money gets spent. Cutting 6Music and Asian Network doesn’t save much compared to the total.

  22. Barac consulting | Notes on designing the Guardian iPhone app

    Always good to read about design processes, and this helps me understand why some of the things I find slightly annoying about the otherwise good app are the way they are. (via Simon Willison)

  23. Crowdsourced document analysis and MP expenses

    About writing the Guardian’s site that lets people examine MPs’ expenses. Especially good on the lessons learned from the first version, and how they improved for the second.

  24. Charlie Brooker: why I love video games | Technology | The Guardian

    Not just interesting on why games are good, but on exactly how non-games-players get frustrated with them. Would be good to talk about that more.

  25. Read it and weep: Evan Williams of Twitter on Newsnight - the transcript | Technology |

    What’s more depressing: The bored inanity of the Newsnight interview? That an event this unimportant is reported by the Guardian? Or the Guardian’s relentlessly anti-Twitter commenters? Tough call.

  26. The Measures Taken: Penthouse and Pavement

    Longer version of his ‘Guardian’ article, with pictures and links, about the BBC 2 documentary about Sheffield’s brutalist Park Hill estate (worth catching on iPlayer). I wish the developers weren’t able to destroy so much of the place. (via City of Sound)

  27. Frinton-on-Sea’s historic railway gates removed ‘under cover of darkness’ by Network Rail | UK news |

    Yes, it’s a bit quaint to want to hang on to this stuff. But it’s also a shame objects and practices important to a place and its inhabitants get ditched in favour of efficiency and money.

  28. G20 protest videos: Growing catalogue of evidence against police | UK news |

    As Charlie Brooker said on Newswipe, how come all the press and TV crews failed to catch the real story at the time. And they wonder why many of them are doomed. (via Tom Taylor)

  29. Simon Jenkins: Here’s proof. The innocent do have something to fear | Comment is free | The Guardian

    “One of the few home secretaries who dominated his department rather than be cowed by it was Lord Whitelaw in the 1980s. He boasted how after any security lapse, the police would come to beg for new and draconian powers. He laughed and sent them packing…” (via Preoccupations)

  30. Charlie Brooker: To politicians, we’re little more than meaningless blobs on a monitor | Comment is free | The Guardian

    I’m going through that periodic “who can I bring myself to vote for?” dilemma and this just makes it worse. Just one good party would be enough. (via Lee)

  31. Financial crisis timeline | Business |

    Handy summary of the past month’s descent into madness. Ideal for someone who’s, say, been travelling through central Asia for four weeks…

  32. Condé Nast to launch Wired magazine in the UK | Media |

    I hate that a bit of me is torn between bitterness and excitement about this. I want not to care. (via Haddock)

  33. Yahoo downgrades antispam measure after causing BT email chaos | Technology | The Guardian

    Including a quote from “freelance web consultant and blogger Phil Gyford”.

  34. BBC drops Grange Hill | Media |

    Damn. I’ve still been enjoying recent series, and the next one will be the last. I bet you it (and Top of the Pops) will be brought back by future BBC decision makers, like Dr Who was.

  35. With friends like these … Tom Hodgkinson on the politics of the people behind Facebook | Technology | The Guardian

    Yes, all very well, but I’m guessing Hodgkinson hasn’t analysed the beliefs of the bosses of every company he has any interaction with, only the most attention-grabbing.

  36. Ben Goldacre: Now for ID cards - and the biometric blues | Comment is free | The Guardian

    Can we all club together and buy Ben Goldacre an award for services to common sense or something? He’s been on fire this year.

  37. Major pirate website shut down | | Guardian Unlimited Business

    This is even worse. Appalling reporting from Katie Allen, using FACT, Trading Standards and the British Video Association as her only source of quotes. (via Haddock)

  38. Why the BBC Trust’s decision on iPlayer sells us all short from Guardian Unlimited: Technology

    If Cory’s too much for you, Bobbie’s more English in his disgust. Gahhh. 86% of the public respondents are obviously far less important than the precious “industry stakeholders”. Angry. (via Wonderland)

  39. Writers’ rooms: Will Self | Special Reports | Guardian Unlimited Books

    I love this series. As someone else said, they’ve mostly looked like typical taken-over spare rooms. Comfortable. Almost not like work rooms. Self’s is reassuringly different.

  40. John Sentamu: Face to faith | Guardian daily comment | Guardian Unlimited

    The Archbishop of York on how ethics are not the same as feelings, law, social norms or religion, and how ethics in business are important. Also, I hadn’t noticed comments on Guardian articles before (in tiny tiny text).

  41. Guardian Unlimited Arts | Arts features | Steve Rose on the renaissance of the Brunswick Centre

    And the history of the its birth. It looks lovely now, and could only be improved by the reappearance of Skoob Books and by calling it the “Brunswick Centre” instead of the “Brunswick”. Stupid pointless re-branding. (via Blech)

  42. Comment is free: Religions don’t deserve special treatment

    It’s a shame this needs saying, but still, great stuff. “It is time to refuse to tip-toe around people who claim respect, consideration, special treatment, or any other kind of immunity, on the grounds that they have a religious faith.” (via Haddock)

  43. Guardian Unlimited | Family | Family Forum: How eccentric are your people?

    I thought this would be horrendously cloying but it was actually really funny.

  44. Guardian Unlimited | Guardian daily comment | Confessions of a virtual virgin

    Newspaperman Roy Greenslade on coming to terms with being a blogger, and what journalists must now accept and learn.

  45. Guardian Unlimited | The Guide | Jacques Peretti: History in the remaking

    The commodification of our childhood memories. “Once they start making programmes about your youth, you may as well kill yourself with a spiked ball, preferably while wearing rollerskates.”
