  • - Attention Artists - brush and paints are now free, by Matt Haughey. "The tools to deliver your creations are finally free. I am already seeing profound changes in how students can create and share their work but I bet in a couple years from now it'll be even more dramatic. We'll look back at the days when you were charged by the downloaded megabyte as quaint and laugh and wonder what things were like before YouTube and Flickr (and others, of course) took away those limits."
  • - My household shops at our local Sainsbury's, and one of my pet hates about unpacking groceries, is the plastic. It's an unnecessary waste product. So it's good to see that they will now be packing more than 500 of their own products in compostable packs. More recycling! More!
