To address this, today I’m introducing a regular Friday round-up of everything that has interested me in the preceding week but that I haven’t had time to blog about in depth. Let me know what you think...
- Here's an interesting BBC article on how the names for police operations are selected.
- I recently wrote about cameraman Sami al-Hajj, who is being held at Guantanamo Bay. Shortly afterwards, MobLogic sent me a link to their rather more in-depth blog post on the same topic.
- I also wrote about the longest URL in the world – Gingerous pointed me to a site with information on long URLs (and other long things, if that’s your bag). Oh and since then, I found an even longer URL, this time with 370 characters. Unsurprisingly, it was on the same government website.
- Ridger, FCD is a regular commenter on this blog so I’d just like to give a plug to her own blog, The Greenbelt. Nothing to do with the music festival, there’s some good stuff about language, evolution, politics and, er, birds. You can even find out what FCD stands for (well, I didn't know).
