Choose What You Read

I picked up on this excellent FT article via James Burt’s always entertaining blog. As it happens, I’ve been commuting into London a lot more than usual lately, and the way that the bloody free papers seem to have taken over the world astonishes me. I find it absolutely extraordinary that people who are prepared to put up with massive rises to their fares every year will avoid spending a single penny on something more worthwhile to read than Metro or London Lite. It’s probably one of the first signs of the end of civilisation, y’know.

    And on the same page of James Burt’s blog, there’s a link to an article on the creator of Comic Sans, who looks strangely familiar somehow…

    I’m trying to work out who he reminds me of … but whoever it is, it’s a nice article, too. Missed that one. And welcome to this place, Gordon!
