TTMMHTM – ZooBorns, Colleague book win, Browser Security and vintage parkours

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

Things that made me happy this morning (well technically it is morning and the aftermath of the BBC party):

  • ZooBorns is a blog about newly born animals in zoos around the world – instant win (via Simon Willison of course)
  • My esteemed Austrian colleague who now moved to the valley Klaus Komenda had his university thesis published as a book well done my friend (I should write another one – itching)
  • Talking of books, Google released a CC licensed wiki/book on browser security cheers for that big G!
  • If you thought Casino Royale was the first big movie to feature awesome parkours scenes (OK, the running through the wall was an easy way out – shame on you Daniel), check out this 1930 footage of a parkours-style running and climbing oddball
  • If you really want to impress the ladies, make sure to wear a life size Link/Zelda paper hat – also a great idea for the next meeting in the office.
  • Three people at the BBC Backstage party telling me independently that they love TTMMHTM - I never knew it’d be a success.

Also, a great reminder that you should ask to be able to get:

Could it really be that easy?
