While I wait for my H+Sons to arrive so I can finally post pictures of my new ride, Wired has a nicely executed HTML5/CSS online(-only?) article on bike messengers’ relationship with technology. I initally thought the neat inset images were background divs with chunky borders, but they’re actually just absolutely-positioned; the red arrow graphics are background images.

Radiohead (my favorite band by some modern metrics) have just announced their eighth full-length album, The King of Limbs, slated for digital release on Saturday, February 19th and physical (and possibly metaphysical, lest the $39-worth of packaging is actually printed on newsprint) release on Monday, May 9th.
The name of the new album relates to an oak tree in Wiltshire’s Savernake Forest, thought to be around 1,000 years old. The forest lies around three miles away from Tottenham House, a listed country house where Radiohead recorded part of ‘In Rainbows’.
The tree is a pollarded oak, referring to an ancient technique for harvesting timber for fencing and firewood. The phrase also appears in the 23rd chapter of the Qu’ran.

Of course, I must admit I was somewhat skeptical of BIG’s waste treatment plant-turned-ski slope.
