The Opte Project is mapping the Internet and creating visual maps. Here's one from last week. 5 million edges and has an estimated 50 million hop count. I'm not sure exactly what that means. They have a feature, turned off right now unfortunately, which would allow you to find your own IP address on the map. "You are HERE".

Hm, it looks kind of alive to me. Like a cell or a galaxy.

To summarise, you think Lib Dems are evil, and I beievle they are an acceptable progressive option."You cite Islington as doing well but they lost about a dozen seats to Labour in 2006." "by my reckoning the 30.2% I got in Cabot was a better result for Labour than all except one of the subsequent elections in that ward."Don't these two bits kind of contradict each other? Or is it just that losing seats is okay if you're Labour? Or are you ineffable?I'd describe Islington c.2005 as the most impressive failure of Labour campaigning in recent years. The highly dubious strategy of attacking one ward councillor on as personal basis as possible and hoping the other two would fall clearly backfired - you just succeeded in splitting a pile of wards, in effect removing all the unpopular Lib Dems and leaving the popular ones - meaning you haven't got a cat in hell's chance of winning in 2010.And as for the Kentish Town by-election, didn't Labour come third? And wasn't there a recount for second/third place? That must have stung. Especially since I do remember seeing a number of Tory leaflets from that campaign attacking the Lib Dems far more than they did Labour. Kentish Town started as a three way and finished up with a whopping Lib Dem majority. Mr. Shanker might want to keep schtum about recycling - here in Hackney my estate doesn't have door to door recycling, despite a trial - it's reserved for the rich people in Stokey. And there was the whole fiasco on plastic - apparently recycling plastic was evil, until Labour decided to give it a go after (what appears from their website) to have been a four year campaign by the evil, evil Lib Dems.My problem with the "new" Labour party stems from it losing its way (twice) - firstly with the great shift to left, and secondly with its great shift to the right. And if you want a prime example of why I don't beievle Labour have a jot of ideology left, you'd do worse than consider the war in Iraq, the continuing erosion of civil liberties and the level of pandering to the media perpetrated by the government. "Morrisonian" tickles me; "Marxist" or "Thatcherite" or even "Bennite" or "Blairite" maybe but "Morrisonian"... that's a bit like being "Campbell-Bannermanite" or indeed "(Ming) Campbellian"It amuses me that I have riled you quite so much - you've clearly now roped in your mates to slag me off, and have felt obliged to write . It's about WHAT you do and WHAT you stand for, not how much (necessarily - and not in an Eric Ollerenshaw, bugger off to Lancaster, way) you talk about it.

I am not sure that replacing the 10-year old red and yelolw paving with Tianenman grey is an improvement.I am happy that the town is more appealing to young people, but the expensive wooden animals are pretty drab and skateboarding is dangerous in a shopping area.My main criticism is that the town has been turned into a hostile environment for older people. There are now fewer seats, and the logs which may be suitable for younger people are not ideal for those who need higher seats with arms for helping them to stand up. The High Street is a long uphill slog if you are elderly; I hope that by the time the designers reach that age the town will have been more sympathetically refurbished.Not to mention the appalling and unnecessary waste of money ..
