This month’s edition of Things That Are Good

  • This cartoon, which compares the design approach of Apple, Google and everybody else (thanks, Ben).
  • The film Once, which is now out on DVD. A lovely wee sweet thing that’s about music and relationships and nothing in particular. And the music’s ace.
  • The Office: An American Workplace. Series 3, I think – whatever one ITV2 is currently showing.
  • Terminator, the telly series. It’s rubbish, but it’s really good rubbish.
  • The book Suckers. It’s an expose of alternative medicine and while it’s preaching to the converted, it’s still fascinating.
  • The WordPress Antileech plugin, which helps identify – and frustrate – site scrapers and sploggers.
  • This essay about school. Not sure I agree with all of it, but it’s interesting.

And that’s it for now. What’s keeping you entertained these days?
