    Watch for the first 2 minutes 30 seconds rant about Christians complaining that “Christianity is under attack”. Brilliant. (via Haddock)

  13. Illustration Friday

    A different topic every week for you to create an illustration about. Lovely idea. Why are there so few hours in the day and days in the week? I want to do everything. (via Haddock)

  14. Pillow Speaker With Volume Control: Electronics & Photo: Amazon.co.uk

    Years ago I tried a Laurie Anderson sculpture that pretty much did just this and it was lovely. Hmm… (via Haddock)

    Free converter for making video into iPod/iPhone-friendly video. (via Haddock)

  16. Upload.mn - free image hosting - Wired UK

  22. YouTube - Design Coding

    Rap: “Please don’t use tables even though they work fine, when it come to indexing they give searches a hard time. Make it easy for the spiders to crawl what you provide, remove font-type, font-color and font-size.” Awesome. (via Haddock)

  23. HistoryShots Information Graphics - Prints

    Nice posters of timelines and similar infographics, along the lines of that one of Napoleon’s Russian campaign. Mostly American topics. (via Haddock)

  24. Mail-trends - Google Code

    “Mail Trends lets you analyze and visualize your email (as extracted from an IMAP server)” Haven’t tried it, but it looks purty. (via Haddock)

  25. BBC - BBC Three - TV Listings

    TV listings done as a slowly whizzy (and pointless) Flash thing. Is there really *nothing* more useful that BBC staff could be doing? (via Haddock)

  26. Daf Yomi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “… a daily regimen undertaken to study the Babylonian Talmud one folio (a daf consists of both sides of the page) each day.” Would take 7.5 years. (via Haddock)

  27. New World Notes: All About My Avatar: Tasrill Sieyes

  28. Automatic writing | eG weekly | EducationGuardian.co.uk

    Fascinating. Philip M Parker can generate a book automatically when someone orders it. I stumbled across one for sale on Amazon. (via Haddock)

  33. The new BBC homepage on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Lots of people commenting on one third of a design seen in a photo. So we haven’t got past that “design is what it looks like” phase after all then, eh? Bah. (via Haddock)

  34. Greyworld

    Lots of lovely public art projects. No, really, public art that’s fun and interesting! (via Haddock)

  35. Dashing Tweeds » Tailored Outfits - Cycle Suit

    Splendid cycling tweed outfits with reflective thread and Teflon coating. Splendid. (via Haddock)

  40. 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)

  41. Donnacha DeLong: The Journalist article

    Another dumb NUJ versus the forces of progress article. Established media is authoritative and experienced. Normal people are sometimes inaccurate. Therefore “Web 2.0” is bad. (via Haddock)

  42. The NUJ’s blinkered approach to online : October 2007 : Shane Richmond : Technology : Telegraph Blogs

    Brilliant dissection of a dumb article about the effect of new media on the role of journalists’. (via Haddock)

    Simple-sounding online backup service for Windows or Mac. (via Haddock) (UPDATE, 2009: Heard not so good feedback about it, trying Backblaze instead.)

  44. Zzap Zzuperstore

    Complete scanned versions of every issue of Crash!, Zzap! 64, C&VG, etc, etc. I bought Crash! and Sinclair User. Brilliant. I feel 13 again. (via Haddock)

  45. Telephone and broadband packages

    The Advertising Standards Authority on phone and broadband claims of “Unlimited” usage: “Something can be described as ‘unlimited’ even if a fair-use policy exists.” Pathetic. A licence for companies to print lies, correcting via a footnote. (via Haddock)

  46. Flickr: Discussing RSS feed of your contacts’ favorites (Y! Pipe) in Flickr Hacks

    How to make an RSS feed of your contacts’ favourites using Yahoo! Pipes. (via Haddock)

    Nice looking online mag of interesting things to do in London. Not that I’ll get round to many of them. (via Haddock)

  48. Coudal Partners - The 2012 Olympic Logo: A Rant: London Broil

    I hate the ‘London’ text, and I’m *slightly* nervous about it overall, but generally I agree with every point here. By 2012 the logo will be a familiar friend and few people will hate it. Certainly better than the usual naff Olympic logos. (via Haddock)

  49. TV Links

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