Thoughts on watching Heroes

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. You, ah, don’t like it?
    I don’t miss much by not watching telly, do I?
    Nice clean site design these days, JJ. *approve*

  2. Oh, Heroes is diverting enough. It’s also quite interesting in that I think it might be the final proof (if any were needed) that superhero stories plain suck.
    Yes, I’m quite liking the design here. A bit too much leading, perhaps, and there are a few things I’d like to tweak: at the moment it’s stock Mid-Century templates.

  3. Not that I’ve seen Heroes [again, no TV] but this is clearly the law of Inverse Creativity – the more successful a programme is the less money they allocate to it. Presumably with a view to making more profit.
    It goes like this: make it well, so it gets talked about by the great and the good, then, once it tips and the masses are hooked, feed them crap, for verily they won’t notice the difference [oh except for the few who found it in the first place, but we don’t care about them anymore – just look at the ratings]. Then take it off air before the ratings fall, and whoopy-do! all the accountants are happy.
