Not sure if anyone’s mentioned this before, but a thought occurred to me that there might be a flaw in the way the Lib Dem Voice Golden Dozen, specifically the seven most popular links, is compiled. Those top seven are based on the seven posts that receive the most click-throughs from the Lib Dem Blogs [...]
Can’t remember if I’ve ever suggested this before back in the mists of blogtime, but I was playing poker online last night and wondering how many other of my readers and fellow bloggers play, and whether there’d be interest in setting up some sort of game or tournament for British political bloggers/Lib Dem bloggers or [...]
A thought occurs to me: if you have a phone capable of sending messages by SMS, what’s to stop you branding it as ‘Twitter-compatible’? An addition to this is the thought that someone – possibly inspired by the Amstrad Emailer – is currently working on a Home Twitterphone system so that you too can join [...]

I’ve just seen someone on a forum being pedantic about the meaning of ‘pedantry’. That sound you hear is the internet eating itself.
A bizarre thought occurred to me last night watching the rugby – like France in the 2006 football World Cup, England started poorly and have then improved as the tournament has gone one. One of the keys to that improvement has been a player who was one of the two scorers the last time they [...]
