What We're Reading

1. Evgeny Morozov: New law being debated in France that would allow online users to have information about themselves deleted from public domain after certain time period. Already small industry in salvaging online reputations.

2. The desaturated Santa, for when Photoshop is just too simple.

3. Michel de Broin has an excellent online portfolio of conceptual art. I love his burglar alarm silencer, socialising fridges and bicycle with exhaust pipe.

4. Comment central: competition for most pedantic graffiti. My personal favourite, in a pub toilet in Oxford:

"Fuck the Polis"
(the above crossed out and written underneath) 'Fuck the POLICE'
(the above crossed out in turn and written underneath) 'Perhaps they do mean 'polis' and are in fact refering to the Graeco-Roman concept of city state?'

5. Collection of Victorian infographics, h/t Kottke.
