Very strange web seen this morning. There didn’t seem to be a spider in view. I thought maybe caterpillars, but none that could see. It was like a suspended, open bag. Mystified.

@mandaris I guess I would be best off looking at MDN myself. I certainly have little desire to emulate the tag soup I see in many Wordpress themes.

Is this the most interesting newsletter ever?

No, of course not. But it does give me the opportunity to pour scorn on sub-editors who question everything.

A nice article extolling the virtues of do-less gardening, both in the garden and on the planet, which I definitely appreciate. I will just say that all this is much more difficult with pots on a terrace, circumstances even less natural than a garden.

Tragically, Emeritus Professor Robert Eric Frykenberg has still not seen fit to correct the egregious howler he perpetrated in 2008, to which I drew attention back then. Talk about being a non-influencer.

Latest episode: Palatable is not Potable

Whatever you think about bottled waters, the story of supplying clean, safe water that people actually want to drink is a fascinating one. Christy Spackman talked to me about her new book, The Taste of Water.

@jtr Ah, the lure of the dreaded “lifestyle” app or business, treated with total disdain and utter contempt by investors. Which is why you should ignore them if all you want is enough.

Roman roads visualised as a tube map. I cannot see any possible use for this in my own life, but I am thrilled beyond words that someone saw fit to make it.
