I realised the other day that when I was using posterous as a blogging engine I posted a lot more links to things I found interesting. This was mostly because posterous made it really easy to include paragraphs or images from the linked to page. Now I am using telegr.am I have to put in the extra effort to write a post. And apparently I’m too lazy to do that.

Yesterday, I spent 11+ hours on trains/replacement bus service, and so had plenty of time to catch up on my instapaper backlog. I thought it might be interesting to post some of the articles I shared via my twitter account, or via email to specific people. They cover all sorts of topics, from crafting, through science to cartography. But, here goes :

and then finally a link to an interesting podcast:

There were other articles read, but those were the highlights, and I also spent time reading The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks which so far I’m finding really interesting and for me, again so far - I’m a third of the way through it, is a good balance between story and science.

I’m not sure how often I’ll do posts like this, depends if anyone likes it I guess, or whether I find it useful to have it in blog form rather than in a twitter/email archive. But, regardless, here’s what I spent my day thinking about. That, and how much I’d like teleportation to be a thing.
