  1. HS_LicensedVenueList.pdf (application/pdf Object)

    City of London venues licensed for weddings.

  2. Futurelab - Innovation in education

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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)

  6. 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.)

  7. 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.

  8. YouTube - Bristol In The 1920s

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

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

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Gigantic.com - tickets for gigs, concerts and festivals

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. Journa-list.com

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

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

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

  21. 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.

  22. TV Links

    Lots and lots of TV that’s been on in the UK to (presumably illegally) watch online. (via Haddock)

  23. Moving Target Forum - All Discussions

    UK cycle courier forum. (Vanilla seems like the forum software of choice.)

  24. Neighbourhood Fix-It

    I keep forgetting the name of this. “Report, view, or discuss local problems like graffiti, fly tipping, broken paving slabs, or street lighting.” Reports go straight to the council concerned. Excellent. (via Tomski)

  25. PlanningAlerts.com | Email alerts of planning applications near you

    New to me. It just works. I even get direct links to the council website to comment on each application. Wonderful. This is how council websites should work. (via Tomski)

  26. Russell Davies: a possible date for your diary

    A one-day London conference on interesting things. Could be excellent, although the flood of enthusiastic comments from advertising people don’t get my hopes up.

  27. WWOOF (UK)

    World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms in the UK.

  28. Mexican Food, Chilies, Tomatillos at MexGrocer.co.uk

    New UK store - delivering Mexican food and ingredients to you. (via my page on London’s lack of Mexican restaurants.)

  29. Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music - Forums -> Viva Piano

    Handy for tips on buying pianos, for when my fingers get twitchy and I need to window shop again.

  30. Take Your Medicine - UK Music Podcast

    Now I’ve found a podcast I like I *finally* see the point of them.

  31. The New York Review of Books: City Lights

    Review of Tristram Hunt’s ‘Building Jerusalem: The Rise and Fall of the Victorian City’. Were things better when wealthy Victorians did things for the plebs? (Subscribers only unfortunately)

  32. MySociety - Travel-time Maps and their Uses

    Lovely maps of travel times around the UK by Lightfoot & Steinberg, data wranglers to the Ministry. (via Haddock)

  33. London’s lack of Mexican (Phil Gyford: Writing)

    My page on there being no decent Mexican food in London has spawned its own mailing list for those interested. Yum!

  34. Geograph British Isles - photograph every grid square!

    IS this new or have I just not seen it before? “Aims to collect a geographically representative photograph for every square kilometre of the British Isles.” Lovely. Nice Google Earth integration too. (via Tim/twisty)

  35. The Questors Theatre - Acting at the Questors

    “The largest amateur theatre in Europe”

  36. Improbable Show - DEVOTED AND DISGRUNTLED What are we going to do about theatre?

    A friend enthusiastically told me this was a really good event. Certainly lots of discussion there.

  37. Candace: even more critical mass

    Don’t you love living in a free country? Grrrrr.

  38. Old Walton Pictures Index

    Loads and loads of old photos of Walton-on-Naze, where I often go on holiday.
