when I came up with the title for this blog post: adactio.com/journal/6291/
He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencods’ roes.

Hi, so MySpace destroyed hundreds of thousands of blogs yesterday. Just so you know. Even @archiveteam
can't stop wholesale no-warning hits.
Has anybody on the LazyWeb built a scrAPI to convert a public Twitter profile to RSS? (Twitter, like Google, now sees RSS as a threat)

Edward Snowden has a posse.
So happy that @StuartMcMartin
, and @tomprior
saw the International Space Station for the first time tonight.
So I basically just saw a version of the docking sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey …from my back garden …in real life. #ISS #ATV
Time for a sequel to the ISS flypast: the supply ship following it should be visible in the next five minutes. 2013-06-07T23:00
Wow, that was crazy: while watching the (magnificent) ISS flypast, we saw two other satellites in a perpendicular Low Earth Orbit. Busy sky!
People of southern UK: in twenty minutes, go outside and look up into the night sky—the ISS will be unmissably bright. 2013-06-07T22:43
Wow! The ISS was by far the brightest object in the sky tonight. Beautiful!
In fifteen minutes I’m going to walk outside and wave up at these six people: howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com
Crossover conspiracy theories:
Occam’s razor can be kept sharp using pyramid power …but only if the pyramid was made by ancient astronauts.
The Skeuomorphic Earth Society.
Crossover conspiracy theories:
The Apollo astronauts *did* go to the moon, only to discover that the moon is, in fact, flat.
Crossover conspiracies theories:
The Beagle never made it to the Galapagos islands. Darwin faked the whole thing in Down House.

Off to Kew Gardens with @clagnut
. And what a lovely day it is for it too.
Perplexed by the amount of breath expended on the new Daft Punk album while a new album by The National is here to be cherished & treasured.
Having lunch at Moshimo while there’s an Indo-Scottish wedding at the town hall: the men are wearing kilts and the women are wearing saris.
Re-reading Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous With Rama while listening to Underworld and John Murphy’s soundtrack to Sunshine. Immersive.
An exit row of Bad Seeds.
At the airport bidding farewell to Porto about to board the EasyJet flight to Gatwick. In a surprising twist, Nick Cave is on this flight.
Leaving Düsseldorf. Thank you to everyone at @btconf
for your kindness: you made me feel very welcome. Tschüß!
Both FirefoxOS & Chrome have this really confusing boundary between packaged "apps" & web sites. Let's get rid of the former. ♥ URLs.
“Cheese is really good at being cheese, but it’s crap at being chicken.” —words of wisdom from @csswizardry
. I can’t wait for the remix.
Getting ready to open up the show at Beyond Tellerrand with a brand new untested talk. Nervous. *gulp*
At Brighton station, where someone just proposed through a message on the departures board. She said yes. Train travellers applauded.
Infinite scroll. A footer. Choose one.
OH: “Port is *really* confusing.”
Poopin’ like a motherfucker.
Spent the whole morning reorganising the @clearleft
device lab after somebody “helpfully” tidied it up yesterday. It’s much better now.
