Some Very British Twittering

In rambling on on February 7, 2009

TwitScoop Buzzing

So what is happening this morning? All across twitter on a saturday the british (in england, scotland, ireland and, hmmm, germany), especially in cities like manchester, derby, sheffield, birmingham, london, edinburgh and brighton woke up with a hangover on a bloody lovely morning, talked about whether the weather was snowy, sunny or icy, and settled down to breakfast of toast with tea or coffee and the guardian before getting dressed and going to the shops, the footy or the six nations rugby if they can get there given the cancelled trains or the conditions on the roads.

In short, everyone British on twitter just posted the same message. (Then they decided to stay home and play MMOs.)

Playing with the Snow

In hopefully helpful,rambling on on February 2, 2009

This blog is looking a bit neglected. Never mind – I’ll get back to cherishing it at some point soon.

Latest thing I didn’t have time for but to hell with it did it anyway project: UK Snow Map grabbing people’s tweets from twitter, where they’ve detailed the snow reports in their postcode area using the tag #uksnow, and mapping them.

I wish I could get the “twitpic”s that people have posted into the page too, but there doesn’t seem to be a non-convoluted way to do it.

Loads of fun anyway.

Something Might Happen by Julie Myerson

In books read on February 1, 2009

Declaring literary blogging bankruptcy as I'm now eight months behind on logging books read and I would like to get back into the swing of things without dropping further behind!

Borrowed.

2 copies of this book are available on BookMooch.
