Basset Hound socks

Basset Hound socks

A gift to me from Joy. Because christmas just wouldn't be christmas without a jaw-droppingly ugly pair of bad-taste socks.

Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious - T-Shirt

Rawk! Fantastic t-shirt commemorating my favourite line from “Lazy Sunday”. Ordered!

Wikipedia, academia and Seigenthaler

Great post by danah boyd about what Wikipedia is and isn’t good for — Make sure and read Jimmy Wales’s steak-knife metaphor. My equation: Full correct information > incomplete information > incorrect information > no information. Wikipedia is nowhere near perfect, but as a free resource it’s fucking amazing. And I’ve read it more than I ever touched the full Britannica collection my parents had when I was a kid.
