Guaranteed Cory-free

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. 1000 posts, pah, that’s so last year. I’m at 1232 at the mo 😉

  2. Hmm, it’s funny, I’ve also noticed the sheen wearing off boing boing. Interesting that it’s not just me. I just had a peek at the archives from a year ago to see if anything significant had changed in that time, but the content seems largely interchangable with what’s on the site today. I wonder if it’s the idea that’s wearing thin rather than the execution. Let’s assume not for the time being though.
    As for a “British Boing Boing”, (and I’m sure the argument for it will become more persuasive once you stop referring to it as the “British Boing Boing” – shame is taken), you’re right – sod thinking it through and just do it. If you build it they will come (and quite possibly leave again soon afterwards, but that’s the risk I’m afraid).

  3. No, you’re right; that was pretty much what I was suggesting. Oooh. I love the sound of something afoot.

  4. Notwithstanding the slightly-less-than-resounding chorus of support: I’ll stick something up soonish. I have a couple of thoughts about some not-quite-traditional blog stuff that might be interesting to try out.
