Creative Commons tools from… Microsoft?

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. Ah, so it’s not just me then 😉
    Some of them, strangely, link back to Microsoft, although it’s easy to filter out. You just look for microsoft and quality software in the same entry and delete 😉
    I’m sure it’s all part of another wave of proper spam, this is just the surge before the storm!

  2. i was getting piles of the stuff. I”ve gone back through all my entries and turned the comments off, mindnumbingly tedious but now i only have comments open on the posts on the main page. can’t stop the heaps of trackbacks though
