  2. Hire me!

    I’m looking for freelance or contract web building and/or designing work. I comment my code!

  3. The Mapmakers

    I just finished reading The Mapmakers (Amazon US, UK) by John Noble Wilford which was wonderful.…

  4. The Big Brother universe

    Swapping housemates between different countries’ ‘Big Brother’ houses. It’s fantastic, really!

  5. Revamped Haddock Directory

    I’ve rewritten and redesigned the Directory. NEW! IMPROVED! STILL GREEN!

  6. The Believer

    McSweeney’s new mag can now be shipped outside North America. Hurrah.

  7. Arthur Brown, 1914-2003

    Distant Christmas memories of the Essex historian, who died in March.

  8. Life as a 19th century fire-eater

    Part of Henry Mayhew’s interview with a street fire-eater is fascinating, but not for the weak of stomach.
