Today’s Links (07/10/08)
- Architecture review: Le Corbusier, The Crypt, Metropolitan Cathedral | Art and design | The Observer
- Mandelson: ‘I’m joined at the hip with PM’ | Politics | The Observer
I’m still totally confused by the return of Mandelson. It seems inevitable that he’ll go down in flames for the umpteenth time, and no one can stand him, not even the Blairites. What on earth was Brown thinking?
Made of fail. For one thing, users are not actually anonymous, for another, the Reddit users are just regurgitating existing 4chan memes. Oh, and it doesn’t even look like a chan board.
- Helium Foot Software: Makers of MercuryMover
‘With MercuryMover, you can move and resize windows on your Mac from the keyboard, positioning them precisely where you want.’ Moving and resizing windows is pretty much the only thing I used the trackpad for, so I’m giving this a try. So far, it seems very well thought out, but the interface is really very intrusive, and will end up being completely unnecessary once I’ve learnt all the command key combinations. (Also, the demo seems a bit stingy - you only get 100 uses, and it took me 30 to try out all the features.)

- The Daily Beast
New news site from Tina Brown. Looks good, reads okay.
- US cuts funding for condoms in Marie Stopes’ African clinics
Is it just me, or is the US policy of encouraginh the spread of HIV/AIDS pretty much a crime against humanity?
