It’s not for nothing that the net is characterised as a time sink, because wherever it carves out efficiencies, it usually manages to create extra work, too.

Well – not really – but this post by Matt Mullenweg needed to be said.
I agree with many of the comments to the post: Movable Type is a nightmare compared to WordPress.

I saw it again last night – a cyclist going through a red light.
I’ve almost been run down twice by cyclists going through red traffic lights.
I’ve cycled myself in the past – but it never crossed my mind to jump lights.

Roy Greenslade summarises the current situation facing newspapers.
I agree with his conclusion:
Unless traditional newspaper publishers can find a way of securing substantial online revenue streams, by attracting sufficient eyeballs for their editorial content, there is no future for them.

Speaking of 3D this looks amazing.
The Industry Standard reports on the background to the University of Bath open-source printer that can even replicate most of its own parts.
The Replicating Rapid-prototyper manufactures components by building them up in layers of plastic.
The next version will allow the machine to make its own and other circuitry, bringing it one step closer to complete self-replication.
The future is here!

This is the first time such an outside broadcast has been carried out in the UK.
Pictures were captured by three sets of dual high definition cameras bolted together for each 3D picture channel.
The clever stuff was carried out by The3DFirm technology, with the result viewed through polarising glasses.

In particular the four day week:
We found that just about the same amount of work gets done in four days vs. five days.
Historically it was assumed that advances in technology would lead to everyone working less. It now seems the opposite has happened.
How did that happen?
I’ve long been an admirer of 37signals – their manifesto encapsulates my approach to the web.
