  1. Chris Heathcote: anti-mega: the kids are alright

    And while I’m at it, Chris’s post from a few weeks back. What kind of country are we living in now? We’ll need someone to invade the UK and “liberate” us soon.

  2. London cops reach new heights of anti-terror poster stupidity - Boing Boing

    It’s hard to believe these posters aren’t some kind of parody. And it’s hard to react without using clichés (1984, Orwellian, etc).

  3. London CycleStreets: UK Cycle Journey Planner and Photomap

    A new site for planning your cycle journeys, using OpenStreetMap maps. A great start.

  4. Property search engine for homes for sale & property to rent in the UK - Globrix

    Not a bad interface for property searches. Bookmarking because I like window shopping (or being nosey) and I’ll forget the meaningless URL.

  5. 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)

  6. Magical times at the picture palace - Evening Star 24

    Second part (of two, I think) of my grandad’s memories of growing up in Ipswich in the early 1900s.

  7. William Heath’s blog » Blog Archive » Who wants to live in our new hamlet, just outside London?

    William Heath and co have found a great place for their co-housing project. Exciting.

  8. Child’s-eye view of Edwardian Ipswich - Evening Star 24

    Part one of my grandad’s memories of growing up in Ipswich in the early 1900s.

  9. Watermarks Project

    Lovely idea to make it obvious how disastrous rising sea levels could be. All the photos are mock-ups though unfortunately. (via Noisy Decent Graphics)

  10. Write to Reply

    Aims to provide a way to comment on individual paragraphs of public reports (starting with ‘Digital Britain’). Great stuff (not sure about the way comments are integrated (or not) though).

  11. The little page of TRANSPORT CHAOS

    Great idea. Love the descriptions of chaos levels. Longer-term graphs would be nice.

  12. Corner Cottage, St Ives

    We stayed here this past week. Lovely little place, great location, sleeps up to five. St Ives was great, if wet, this time of year: quiet, friendly, beautiful and tasty.

  13. FreeAgent - Online accounting for freelancers and small businesses

    Another online thing for freelance types, this one for accounting. Lots of UK-specific stuff.

  14. A Typographic Survey of the City of London on Vimeo

    Lovely little video about the typography used in public throughout the City. Only criticism: sound recording is very poor quality. Otherwise, fab. (via Blech)

  15. Requirements for an invoice | Business Link

    Not thrilling, but useful and clearly presented, for UK businesses.

  16. Home ‎(Barbican restaurants‎)

    Wiki for restaurants local to the Barbican.

  17. - Roosters

    I got a pair of boots from Roosters over twenty years ago and (after a long time of not wearing them) I still like them.

  18. West End Whingers

    I’m enjoying this blog’s theatre reviews. Intelligent but down to earth and nothing too obscure.

  19. Friday’s Newspaper Front Pages | UK News | Sky News

    Gallery of (some) UK newspapers, with permalink to the day. (For current day go to UK News, then see link under ‘UK News in Pictures’ on right.

    More listenable accents and dialects, British, old and new, from the British Library.

  21. BBC - Voices - The Voices Recordings

    Recordings of different accents from around the UK.

  22. William Heath’s blog » A place to live

    William Heath is looking for a place to create a “co-housing” project - people living slightly communally. The search is interesting.

  23. The School Of Life - Homepage

    “A new cultural enterprise based in central London offering intelligent instruction on how to lead a fulfilled life.” A religion without religion? Intriguing. (via Kottke)

  24. HS_LicensedVenueList.pdf (application/pdf Object)

    City of London venues licensed for weddings.

  25. Futurelab - Innovation in education

    “Transforming the way people learn through innovative technology and practice.” Interesting looking place, based in Bristol.

  26. Facebook | I Know Hans Montanana

    A group for the music teacher at my old school. Reading the many enthusiastic posts… it’s like he’s the lead in a Hollywood movie about a teacher inspiring kids or something. Lovely.

  27. New College, Oxford - College Oaks

    That story from ‘How Buildings Learn’ about the oak trees being grown to replace the dining hall’s beams? The important part is apparently not true.

  28. Bristol - Real Time Information

    Real-time information of buses’ departure from bus stops, tracking buses fitted with GPS. Not the most beautifully implemented thing in the world but it looks like it works (eg, try postcode “BS1 5TR”). (via City of Sound)

  29. BSA Actor Training

    Part-time courses in London from somewhere I haven’t heard of. (I keep meaning to collate such places in a post. One day.)

  30. YouTube - Wills’s Girls

    Interviews with women who used to work at Wills’ tobacco factory in Bristol. Lovely, but would have been much better if we could just see the women being interviewed, instead of all the graphics.

  31. YouTube - Bristol In The 1920s

    Lovely old footage of bits of Bristol. Presumably with sound added more recently. (via the Bristol Blogger)

  32. Condé Nast set for a flurry of launches - Brand Republic News - Brand Republic

    Apparently planning a UK edition of ‘Wired’. Hahahahaha Boohoohoohoo. (via Haddock)

  33. Save the Railway Path | The campaign to save the Bristol to Bath cycle path from being turned into a bus-lane

    Protest site over some daffy plans to let buses run alongside the peaceful but well-used Bristol to Bath cycle path.

  34. Cityofsound: Robin Hood Gardens is not the same as a digital model of Robin Hood Gardens

    Dan Hill’s excellent summary of the protest going on over plans to demolish the London housing estate. I hope they renovate rather than destroy.

  35. - tickets for gigs, concerts and festivals

    via ChrisDodo who says: “cheaper than the outrageous and shit seetickets”

  36. Bristol Then and Now Photographs - Page One

    Lots of animated images with photos of past and (nearly) present Bristol. A shame more of them don’t line up better, but still interesting.

  37. Rickstones Yearbook 1986 - a photoset on Flickr

    Photos and drawings from my school 21 years ago. You can see me in class 4R (the same photo as 4C on the thumbnails). Also, top row of thumbnails, fourth from left. Good work Ted!

  38. Flickr: mills70’s photos tagged with rickstones

    I’m enjoying Ted’s photos from our school in the 1980s. Fashions were strange weren’t they.

  39. Danny O’Brien’s Oblomovka - Celebrating ORG’s Second Birthday

    The Open Rights Group is doing fantastic things for the UK online world. I joined when they started and if you join now the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust will match your contribution. Go!


    Like my but more comprehensive (yay) but only for UK newspapers (aww) and with higher ideals (yay).

  41. Moving Target: Cyclist-killing lorry driver fined £300

    Yes, the lorry driver must feel awful, but he wasn’t looking where he was going while steering an HGV round a corner. Only a 300 quid fine for killing someone!? Motorists get away with so much while driving dangerous machines.

  42. Scarlet Mist - buy/sell spare music gig and Festival tickets ethically

    Buy and sell UK and Ireland gig tickets at face value, avoiding eBay and touts.

  43. Company v Sole Trader > the tax comparison (£3,000 tax saving ?)

    Another comparison, with example figures for different levels of profit.

  44. Using a Company to Save Tax

    Very handy guide to the pros and cons of sole trader vs limited company. Better at explaining things than my accountant and well worth the cash.
