Coldplay and Stuff White People Like

From Vanity Fair.

It is important to be aware that an affinity for Coldplay can cause an immediate loss of respect among “advanced” level white people. The best way to earn the trust of these people is to say “Coldplay is this generation’s U2.” (Note: this is an insult.) Advanced level white people are often the poorest white people in terms of money but the richest in terms of credibility and respect.

More appropriately, in my opinion Coldplay are this generation’s Dire Straits.

PicLens – Have you heard of it?

PicLens is an amazing browser addon. It basically takes over the whole screen and provides a very intuitive way of browsing through photographs and videos on sites like Flickr and YouTube. It can run on any site after some modifications and there is also a wordpress plugin to enable a photo blog run through wordpress. It’s been a while since my jaw has opened at something on the web but this is really special. Go on, give it a try!

It’s creaking

It’s 30 minutes to the release of Firefox 3 and the site is creaking already. Taking ages just to load the existing page.

Well done Villa

I’m a big Villa fan but this story really makes me proud of the club. I’m going to get one of those shirts for next season.
