- An old story about billboards being subverted.
- An interesting discussion about technical measures to prevent cheating in online games, from the perspective of a game designer.
- David Chess in amusing, parodic form, on noughts and crosses (even if he does call it tic-tac-toe). This cute spoof has apparently generated a lot of follow-ups by others elsewhere, including pages all about rock-paper-scissors. But hey, once was enough, right?
I was briefly surveying my old web-log pages recently and checking to see how many of the links still worked. For example, all of my links to content at the (London) Times are now redirected to the newspaper's home-page. Not only is this an anal thing to do, it seems the sort of thing that will just lead to fewer people looking at their pages. But hey, if they don't want people reading their material, or looking at their advertisements...
Other links are broken because the other party seems to have undergone some sort of gratuitous reorganisation (for example, the LA Times, the Daily Telegraph and the Independent). Do they really have so little idea about the nature of the Web? Remote sites that get bouquets rather than brickbats are the Guardian/Observer, the Washington Post and Salon.
