Walk the tube

Link: London Underground Tube Diary – Going Underground’s Blog.

Planning to visit London? At the link are some extremely useful maps for visitors to our fair city. The length of time it takes to walk between stations for one; and the stations between which it is quicker to walk than to travel between by Tube, for another.

The Going Underground blog (link above) has a rather spooky regular Friday feature: strange garb worn by Tube travellers, taken surreptitiously by "Annie Mole" and her fellow Tube spy bloggers — with associated Flikr area. Take my advice, don’t wear Ugg boots or anything metallic if you visit London and plan to use the Tube. You have been warned.

The Golden Age of Detection Wiki

In about 20 years, when I have a spare five minutes, I would really like to join in this wiki project, which looks great. I’m a fan of wikis, which are a great way to use internet space collaboratively, dovetailing perfectly with blogs.

So, here’s the challenge:  "At the moment we have about 7000 books listed and only about 500 reviews, so most of our slots are empty. Some authors are well-covered; John Dickson Carr, for instance, has reviews for most of his books. Others are entirely blank, waiting for some enthusiast to come and fill them in. We add about three or four reviews a week, so we have many years’ work ahead of us."

The wiki’s creator, Jon Jermey, says: "To join the Golden Age of Detection Mailing list go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GAdetection/
