I’m having trouble with font types, especially after blockquotes. I’m not going to mess with it for a little while, be patient. I hope it’s not too distracting.
BBC Radio 4 did a piece about Nicholas Hawksmoor, known as an occult architect by readers of From Hell. Apparently, they’ve taken it down. I Hadn’t finished listening to it yet, but it sounds like the point of the show is to disprove any occult connections Hawksmoor may have had. The link will take you to the BBC Radio 4, where the show was under “d” for Devil’s Architect. Maybe it will come back someday.

I’ve been hearing about “virtual graffiti” systems for a while, but now there’s some stuff actually happening. The idea is to be able to place virtual notes in spaces that would be accessable through cell phones and the like.
Geonotes (via Many to Many) from Sweden have a wifi based solution, but it only works with Lucent base stations. Still, from my understanding of it, anyone with Win2k, Linux or Savaje OS, a wifi card, and the GeoNotes could leave a location specific note in a Lucent base station (even if the base station doesn’t have special software installed?).
An experimental system in Helsinki called Flirt enabled mobile users to leaves virtual messages or ?hanging data? in specific locations which would be picked up by the next user to pass the same location. The experiment turned the city into a chatroom of flirty Finns.
