Well, the ‘one a day’ plan hasn’t gone very well with the hyperposts, has it? In my defence, I’m so ill that I’ve been to the doctor today, for only the third time in my adult life. I’ve got 680 words written on Jack Kirby so far, but it’s all prelude to the main point – I need to write about the same amount again – and writing is just like pulling teeth for me today. That’ll *definitely* be up tomorrow, along with – I hope – the Beatles post (which will be much easier to write) and with a bit of luck I should be back on schedule to get these finished by the end of the week.
In the meantime, read some stuff what other people have writ:
A Bayesian method for evaluating counterfactuals – this actually ties in with the sciencey part of the Hyperpost stuff…
Costigan Quist states the incredibly obvious by talking about how social networking and online campaigning won’t really make any difference to the election.
Fred Clark on how banks are evil.
Via Lew Stringer, The Guardian are giving away free copies of old 80s kids’ comics every day from Saturday.
Laurie Penny on hypocrisy and the death of the welfare state .
And Matthew Rossi says that Captain America: Rebirth is so fucking boring it makes him sad.
