Fluffy Links – Saturday July 14th 2012

Darina Allen has a blog. And she has a lovely post of how only recently did she learn to type and got herself an iPad.

Piece I wrote on TV for RTÉ Digital.

Showrooming: Retailers now corrupting barcodes so they can’t be read by scanners (phones) and compared online.

Doctor Who best of: List of some of the classic Doctor Who episodes to watch.

Mozilla kills off Thunderbird but full steam ahead for a mobile operating system.

Highly interesting. Red is the first colour to be distinguished when language gets around to colours.

And also via Kottke: Def Leppard re-recording their old songs to screw their record label which won’t negotiate about digital downloads. Some weird contract they had with them.

BBC – How art made the world Part 1, full 60 mins.

Data Journalism. Love this idea of using technology to start writing stories that would have been impossible a few years ago.

    Isn’t there something deeply homely about knowing that Darina is online, blogging and has an iPad? At least you feel that technology is finally accessible.
