  1. Politics doesn’t change anything

    Examples of the many things changed by politics in the UK, as opposed to market-led “disruption”. (via Paul Mison)

  2. Washing Machine for Men

    A good response to that overly simplistic redesign of a washing machine UI. I like the emphasis on reliability over whizzy electronic UIs, which I often think about, say, fancy modern car dashboards too. (via Paul Mison)

  3. Sea Level Rise Maps | Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets

    Worst case for 2100 is estimated to be up to 1 metre of sea level rise. Which puts several nice bits of the UK coast (never mind Netherlands and Belgium) permanently under water. (via Paul Mison)

  4. Adactio: Journal—In dependence

    Jeremy Keith collects a bunch of thoughts and quotes on the importance of hosting your own stuff, not posting to silos owned by companies that disappear with it all. (via Paul’s Mison)

  5. Casting Call: Hollywood Needs More Women : NPR

    Something I’ve vaguely wondered about, researched and put in figures. If 17% of a group is women, then men think women make up 50%. And 33% women is perceived as being more than 50%. I wish there was a citation though… (via Paul Mison)

  6. At The Movies, The Women Are Gone : Monkey See : NPR

    On the tiny percentage of movies, especially mainstream, which is all most people get a chance to see in a cinema, which are about, never mind by, women. (via Paul Mison)

    Impressive: two houses in Florida that back on to each other, but to get from one to the other by road is a 7 mile journey. (via Paul Mison)

  8. TV Networks, Algorithms and the Demise of HMV

    I’m not sure i buy all of this, but some interesting thoughts in there. Almost says that without better discovery tools, Spotify is like HMV, huge but daunting and soulless. (via Paul Mison)

  9. Essex Fingerposts - a set on Flickr

    Lovely set of familiar signposts. (via Paul Mison)

  10. PHP: a fractal of bad design - fuzzy notepad

    This is all true, and so it would be good to read something about why PHP has been *so* popular despite being so bad. (via Paul Mison)
