In which I join the Occupy movement: WaPo – Occupy Google Reader: Changes to the RSS feed irk the ‘sharers’ When Google announced last week that Google Reader, an RSS aggregator with social-networking capability, would be rolling its social features into Google+, its disappointed readers felt helpless and disenfranchised against a powerful force. Hey, kind […]

Have You Heard?

They’re killing Google Reader. It’s all going through Google+ now (when I say “now” I mean “whenever they get around to implementing the change). On the one hand I think this is good because I’m sick of hearing about how important G+ is to Google but then having hacky-ass integrations between it and existing products. […]

In Which iGo Shopping

What have I been up to, you all ask, in desperate need of updates? Well, funny you should ask, because I’ve been keeping on top of the news! And I have no idea what is going on. Once again (this must be what happens when one only reads political sources; therefore responses to things rather […]

Pink Stink

I agree with this: Wheat & Weeds – Another Reason To Hate Pink I also don’t buy pink branded stuff because I absolutely refuse to buy into a “lifestyle” when I’m just looking for [a handbag, a plant, a box of cereal, whatever].

Marimekko

I have a thing for industrial machinery. Those car ads that show the robots? Coolest thing ever. That Mr Rogers that showed the factory making drinking straws? Still seared into my memory. Also I like fashion, and I think I’d really rather like to go to Finland.

Exactly My Point About Online News Sites

Remember my lil’ rant from a couple months ago? About how I never blog anymore because I can’t stand any news site for more than five seconds, except The Times, which yells at me if I throw too much of their content over the paywall? This is perfect:

The Murdoch Apologia

In the Spectator: ‘Simon Jenkins, now a Guardian columnist, wrote before the current horrors that Murdoch ‘is the best thing that ever happened to the British media and they hate it.’ He was right. There are obviously many things wrong with Murdoch’s group, but without his epic victory over the print unions in the 1980s, […]

Well, it’s been quite a day for journalism. Specifically, 200 or so journalists in Wapping who once had a job working for the world’s most-read English language newspaper which has been published since 1843. And for Ryan Giggs’ (et al) social calendar, as it were. A good roundup (but by all means see my retweets […]
