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. Bloggercon? Oh no mate. The real a-list meets in Black Forest, and plots world domination. You may be wondering why we’ve called you here. Well, it’s time to learn the secret handshake, old chap.

  2. What, that A list? Oh for heaven’s sake, Ben, do keep up. I know it’s hard to keep track of who’s who, what with the hoods and all, but you must have realised that attendance has been thinning of late?
    St. James’ Park, Thursday. The usual time.
    Dang, I’ve said too much.

  3. Will the Ethiopian be there?

  4. hmm, I seem to recall pointing out to you, jonathan, that I thought the DG was actually a rather good read. Well written snippets of obscure and mostly trivial information (always likely to make me come back). It’s also often funny. Do you think one day I’ll stop tellng groups of school children who ask me if I’ve ever met anyone famous that I once did a script conference with dannii minogue in the hot spring baths just outside Rekjavik? And instead tell them I once had a coffee with Jonathan Sanderson in Bean Scene in Glasgow?
    Are the A list anything like the A Team? If you can find them you can read them?
