Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Five things that have made my day this week:

The World Museum is a better reason than The Beatles or premier league football to visit football and I discovered their blog this week. Well worth following.

Author Robert X. Cringely is revisiting his seminal work Accidental Empires, working with the readers of his blog to create an annotated and updated version likely to be published some time in the near future. This was the book that inspired me to work in the technology sector (admittedly as an agency PR for technology companies, but it was still work). If you don’t have a copy go and buy one from Amazon.

Gutted that I am missing Transport for London’s Poster Art 150 which celebrates the best poster art commissioned for the London Underground.

I know that there have been 500 people with minor injuries, but  the Siberian meteor burst felt like I was living in a Jerry Bruckheimer film. The best observation I saw about it was in Vice magazine’s email newsletter which asked why so many drivers in Russia had managed to film the asteroid rather than keeping both hands on the wheel?

So there has been extensive character redesigns and different actors will be voicing some of the main protagonists, but I am super-excited that Production I.G are returning with another installment in the Ghost In the Shell series of anime. Arise looks amazing judging by the trailer footage now available on YouTube.
