Busy weekend so I didn’t get around to posting this. Here are my weekly notes:
- Did you get your Facebook username on Friday? I am now mastermaq. Here are three smart things to read related to usernames on Facebook.
- In case you missed it: Jason Jones of the Daily Show at the New York Times.
- Yet another article explaining that location seems to matter more than ever in the digital world.
- According to an Ofcom study in the UK, 43% of adults who currently don’t have Internet access would choose to remain disconnected even if they were given a computer and broadband connection for free. A large portion of that group is old or retired, which might explain the stat. Still, it’s a little disturbing.
The rest of my London trip was good. I did make it to Noel’s place on Saturday, and had a great time playing Rock Band. On Sunday, I visited the British Museum, which was quite impressive. Like the museums we visited in Washington recently, the British Museum is free. Unlike those museums in DC, there is no security to go through, you simply walk in! I had dinner at Gourmet Burger Kitchen that night, and at Hamburger+ the following evening. The rest of my evenings were spent in the pub 🙂
My flight home was direct, thankfully, and was uneventful. I watched two movies: Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (absolutely terrible) and Watchmen (not bad).
I enjoyed my time in London, but it’s good to be back. You can see the rest of my photos here.
