Hard drive failure

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read


  1. Hard drives. Don’t talk to me about hard drives.

  2. Oooh! Ooooh! If you work in science telly, then you have maintain tradition by telling us “How many Encuclopedia Brittanica’s that is.” (fifteen hard drives, I mean).

  3. Trouble is, the youth of today don’t have a clue what the Encyclopaedia Britannica is. And you can’t really compare things to Wikipedia, oddly.

  4. Hmm. I just remembered another five hard drives, none of which are large enough to be of any consequence. Funny how things that seemed gigantic only a decade ago have been rendered so utterly obsolete. All the same, I could really use a couple of spare terabytes right about now. Humph.
