The first linklog post of the year.
~ Birmingham appears at no. 19 on the New York Times list of the best places to visit in 2012 – Mancunians of a certain stripe (i.e. not most of them, we are talking about the insane ones) will splutter into their Boddingtons and complain at length about how this cannot be (via CIB).
~ How the potato changed the world (via Kottke)
~ The graffiti of the ancients (via Bookslut).
And some from the old linklog:
~ Get around online licensing agreements with your cat (originally via Bounder).
~ “My Gran Is On Twitter” (originally via P’Ashton).
~ The “Cheer Up The Chatbot” game – Have a little play and see if you can do it before reading the ‘about’ page (originally via Waxy).
