Just a quickie today. Also, I’ve not been receiving email notifications for some of the comments that have been being posted here, recently — I only noticed Jennie’s comment on the story the other day because I was doing some blog admin stuff and it was at the top of the list.

Power Pop Criminals has a live recording of the Wondermints from 2000

Orange Crate Art on the anti-digit dialing league – an early example of the fight against bad user interfaces

Journeys With Autism on the portrayal of mothers who murder their disabled children

Heresy Corner on Demos’ claim that religious people are ‘more left wing’
