  1. Running the Numbers - An American Self-Portrait

    Images showing the number of things used by Americans every day/week/month/etc. Amazing, scary, etc. (via Haddock)

  2. Hide & Seek

    Pervasive gaming weekend based on the South Bank this weekend. Sounds a lot of fun; I’d go if I was in town. (via Haddock)

  3. São Paulo No Logo - a photoset on Flickr

    Advertising on large outdoor hoardings has been banned. When I rule the world this will happen in London. Oh, and everywhere else, seeing as I’ll rule the world. (via Haddock)

  4. What do you do when your success … sucks? (Skrentablog)

    A look at how Topix worked out why the site didn’t work and what they did about it. (via Haddock)

  5. Swobo Bikes - Otis

    Currently fancying this bike a lot. But it’s only mail order from the US. And maybe I’d prefer a more upright, old-fashioned bike. (via Haddock)

  6. Mux any-to-any video converter by cruxy

    Converts YouTube or most other video types to your chosen format, emails you when it’s done. (via Haddock)

  7. CHUD.com - Tom Cruise’s Starring Role in Watchmen Narrowly Averted

    Phew indeed, but there’s other interesting stuff about this inevitable project. “Your movie audience is basically where your comic book audience was when the graphic novel was written.” (via Haddock)

  8. Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime components

    Makes QuickTime work with all the video formats you’re actually likely to use. Free. (via Haddock)

  9. Telegraph | News | London-on-Sea: the future of a city in decay

    Map of how much of London may flood. Run for the hills. (via Haddock)

  10. ColourLovers Coup.0 :: Colour Lovers

    Odd but interesting and useful site for sharing colour palettes, marred only by over-busy design and annoying Flash. (via Haddock)

  11. MemoryMiner - Digital Storytelling Software - Downloads

    Really nice Mac application for organising photos from your past around people and places. (via Haddock)

  12. Apophenia: suckage explained

    Having no spare time, not wanting any more email, microfame, attention. (via Haddock)

  13. Dion Hinchcliffe’s Web 2.0 Blog

    Lots of very funny, obfuscatory and incomprehensible diagrams about Web 2.0. Couldn’t be spoofed better. I thought diagrams were supposed to make things *simpler*. (via Haddock)

  14. World Geography Quizzes - Hundreds of Map Games

    Loads of very good educational map games for dumbos like me. (via Haddock)

  15. Caledonian Global Challenge - Caledonian Business School

    Europe-based map game. I’m embarrassingly poor at even this. (via Haddock)

  16. Geosense: an online world geography game

    What it says. Good one, you can play against others (or click ‘Visit’ then ‘Play alone’). (via Haddock)

  17. World Map - countries of the world

    Educational map game (my geography is terrible). (via Haddock)

  18. 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)

  19. YouTube - Olbermann: the beginning of the end of America

    Awesome rant about Bush’s irresonsibility. Fantastic and relentless. I love how Americans still refer to the subject of their ire as “sir”. (via Haddock)

  20. YouTube - Battle of The Bands

    Oodles of album art animated Gilliam style. Very nicely done. (via Haddock)

  21. Walk It - A step in the right direction

    Fantastic. Gives you walking directions from A to B in central London. Google et al only do driving directions, which are very different. (via Haddock)

  22. Maps of War

    Excellent animated map showing who’s inhabited and carved up the Middle East over millennia. (via Haddock)

  23. July 2006 - Issue 391 | New Internationalist

    Why carbon offsets and buying trees aren’t the answer to global warming. This is my instinct too but I’d like to find a more objective and scientific source. (via Haddock)

  24. CoComment - Join the conversation

    Maybe this would be a more useful place to store where I make comments on sites, rather than a text file. (via Haddock)

  25. Dicewars - Flash game

    Neatly done, time-wasting Risk-like online game. Must. Resist. (via Haddock)

  26. GogglesBeta09.swf

    Server problems mean I’m probably the last person to link to this. Still fun. (via Haddock)

  27. Mallow street skyscraper - a photoset on Flickr

    Ridiculously huge skyscraper planned for right next to Old Street roundabout. Only a few days left to get objections in to the planning people. (via Haddock)

  28. Clickdensity - website heat maps for usability and information architecture

    Interesting-looking thing for measuring where people click on your pages (although I haven’t tried it).

  29. Where the Hell is Matt?

    Pick-you-up, swing-you-around uplifting, brilliant, simple genius. Would be 33% even better without the sponsor’s logo at the end. (via Haddock)
