  • Speaking HTML is a vital new media language skill. It shows up at the strangest of places and times, and knowing it like a second syntax helps make the internet just that little bit more useful
  • David Seah – A Chindogu Clock for Procrastinators
    A clock that’s never late but 3d6 ahead of schedule? It’s sufficiently odd that it could just work. (BTW, you would probably need 3d6 – 3 for true representation of the clock)

    The Game

    Sometimes there’s just no really good clustering for a bunch of links, so I’ll roll out a mixed set of content. GPS, Learning, GLBT blog respondents and OpenID. It’s diverse, it’s relevant, and it’s here.
