Hi everybody, and welcome to Econsultancy's anti-format.
Yep, this is the exceptional post that proves the rule all Econsultancy blog posts are invaluable.
Only 10 things this week, but I think you'll agree the quality is high. In the space of mere seconds I laughed, cried and composed a dead march for our mutual friend, culture.
Thank you to each and every one of you.
This was the question framing the first talks at #Wired13 on Friday. There’s no question of the change the internet can affect for the developing world, but what hurdles are there before more wide scale adoption?
Speakers from three massively innovative companies, two producing hardware and one an operating system, gave their views on the democratization of technology, and indeed knowledge itself.
I’ll give a brief overview of each talk, to explain three different aspects to the challenge of putting the next 1bn online.
Hello again, readers, and welcome back to the fetid atmosphere of Planet Procrastinate.
What you are reading is our ultimately useless round-up of the week's memes and cool-things. Just click on the things to explore them in more detail.
Please share and comment: it's the only way I belong.
It’s Thursday, and as is traditional, we’ve spent a fair bit of time this week looking at some very silly things on the internet (who says we don’t put in the hours?).
This week’s things that made us go lol are listed as follows.
If you want to send us a web curio, tweet us at @econsultancy or @lexx2099, the man that brings you all this insight. Enjoy the severance pay, Matt!
Hello there! Yes, there are many whimsical, irreverant, hilarious web roundups on the market. This, however, is the most delectable, growing in stature, as it does, with each mouthful.
This week we can boast coelacanths, wibbling arse desserts and Rush Limbaugh.
Join me in saluting Matt Owen for finding a lot of this stuff. Enjoy your severance pay, Matt!
Good afternoon illustrious readers! Welcome back to our alternative to the big newspaper editorials. Where else can you find hard hitting opinion as in Econsultancy's interweb round up of crazy stuff?
I would say it's been a vintage week, and I will, because it has. Enjoy!
Hat tipped to Matt Owen for finding most of these. Enjoy your severance pay, Matt!
BTW, the glorious top image is from The Wurzel's Facebook page.
Welcome to you all! This is without doubt the greatest interweb round up of this nascent series of greatness.
Wipe that drool off your chin and dig in to the great bowl of deeply unsatisying tinned chilli that is the internet.
This week's round-up includes Ninjas, Duran Duran, bears driving cars, and doctor/modernist poet, William Carlos Williams.
Do kindly check it out.
If there's anything you want to direct us to, for future round-ups, whack it in the comments. Enjoy!
Welcome to you all! This week in the Econsultancy content team, we've been laughing at precisely 14 things.
This week's round up includes porcupines, groin gifs, and an excellent Slideshare from Twitter's Bruce Daisley.
They are listed below for your mutual amusement.
Hello all readers and welcome to our newish thing, which was called 'Crowdsauce'.
No doubt this shabby pun is in use in many places on the internet, but here it denotes a round-up post, potentially replacing our weekly infographic, where we can relax and share some fun or interesting stuff (caveat: mostly pointless).
It wasn't doing very well, named 'Crowd Sauce', so we've gamified the title a little bit. I hope you don't feel you were led here under false pretences?
The categories will likely differ each week. Let’s go…
