1. 15071 today — potentially inaccurate as the pedometer cut out in the evening, but I read 11500 before, 3071 after and estimate 500 between.

  2. Just realised that I haven’t turned on the TV for a month. Instead been walking, making things, watching films, reading. Feels good.

  3. tryghost.org looks interesting from an point of view, but if they are so open, where is the code? Where is the CC-0 documentation? Why does clicking “Try It” pop up a modal asking you to give them money (dark pattern, much?) — if it’s so open, be honest!

    It’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out.

  4. Had rather a long, interesting and slightly awkward conversation with some Icelandic chaps in a bar, covering the difference between belief and knowledge, origins of the Icelandic people and the nature of tools.

    Conclusions: Humans are the only animals to create recursive tools, and I am (apparently) an alchemist.

  5. The windows mobile device I’m testing on is at 0% battery, isn’t charging and powers down every 30 secs. Problem is, it then starts up again. Best put it out of it’s misery.
