Monday, January 02, 2006
A happy new year to everyone, and a link festival to kick off 2006. We'll start with this history of the Atlantic Cable and Submarine Telegraphy, a hugely in-depth (if you'll excuse the pun) site complete with a selection of cable route maps, showing the course of the various undersea wires laid in the last 150 years. For example, the world in 1901. The host site, FTL Design is a treasure trove of object histories and objects, machines like the Difference Engine, or Cox's Gold Changer (Cox was the publican at the Black Friar in London, an Arts and Crafts gem with interiors by Henry Poole that stands rather marooned beside Blackfriars station, with the northbound Thameslink tracks punched through the air beside it). You can also flick through the Golden Hour Owner's Manual, for those lucky enough to possess this marvel of technology, visit an online shrine to cult actress Janina Faye, browse a vast directory of eFanzines, enjoy details of Edison's remarkable Electric Pen, read a scanned brochure for the MITS Altair Computer, learn about the many Springfields in the US and see copious images from the 1886 Liverpool International Exhibition. Highly recommended. Links include the Keuffel and Esser slide rule catalogue.

Another history, this time of the TV remote control / contemporary polaroids by Oliver Wang / a gallery of Sony's BetaMax players, both via PC World's 50 Greatest Gadgets page / the story of the trash-hoarding Collyer Brothers / heliography is communication using mirrors / an extraordinary piece of folk architecture, sadly under threat / Motorola's Houses of the Future, from a 1960s ad campaign (via boing boing). In the future, there will be enough dramatic outcrops of rock and isolated verdant gullys for everyone to have their very own cantilevered structure / what's life like in online world that's about to end? Clive Thompson on the last days of Asheron's Call 2 / images of George Orwell / a cartoon by Osbert Lancaster.

Malls of America presents 'Vintage photos of lost Shopping Malls of the '60s and '70s'. What are we reminiscing about exactly? / Overshadowed's photographs are amazing / a huge collection of vintage posters and playbills at the fabulous Circus Museum / vintage adult movie posters / 'This is not just a retrograde cliché.... This is a defiant reclamation of a retrograde cliché.' Seth Stevenson on Jaguar's 'foolish new ad campaign' in Slate / a slide on 'The Conservation of Harry Bertoia's Sculpture Group Symbolizing World's Communication in the Atomic Age'.

Artworks. Paintings by Heather Horton / photos by Nick Turpin / illustrations by Tatsuro Kiuchi / Mary Ellen Mark's haunting photographic portraits / retro stuff sold by Out of Vogue / Andy Budd, a weblog / the Hair Archives / Jeanette Winterson on modern architecture (including praise for Jacobsen's St Catherine's College in Oxford) / Elevator Moods, strange, (very) short films / a list of phobias / 2005's top 50 music videos / 100 things we didn't know this time last year, at the BBC via metafilter / most appropriate for the holiday season: the International Federation of Competitive Eating. Really. Become a gustatory athelete.
