It’s been a week already, so here’s the latest Econsultancy round-up of internet slacker sub-culture.
The Editorial Team spends a fortune on salted peanuts to eat whilst finding this stuff, so I hope you will do the right thing and send us thousands of pounds cash in the post, as scant reward for our efforts.

The storm was stormy, and it ripped the big inflatable beach ball off the roof of Blue Latitude’s office at Old Street roundabout in the heart of London’s Tech City. The ball promptly bounced around and then popped.

Andrew Warren-Payne quote of the week
Every week we post a quote by our most English of Analysts, Andrew Warren-Payne. It’s a bit of an in-joke, but you can be in it, too.
This week, Andrew has been engaging Michael O’Leary, during RyanAir’s second Twitter chat.
