Research/Economics/Media

  1. The Wikiverse! Research: If the thought of recklessly clicking through hundreds of Wikipedia entries at a time no longer floats your boat, here is a new immersive way to drift through a galaxy of wiki links like Han Solo in the Millenium Falcon.

2. Economics: It would seem that the time has come for hoardings to go up and for the politicians to brush off their best baby kissing lips. Thanks to colleague Jo McDowell (Economics) for this site [put together by ex-student of Tonia Calverley]. With the elections fast approaching it’s pretty appropriate!

3. Media: Ads from the past.

Thanks

colleague Rebecca Trethowen. I immediately searched for the old Hugo and Holly KFC ad…remember that one? “Hugo said you go, and I said no you go, and soon he was back, with a pack and then Dad hit the track and so we ate in the back feeling better inside……”….those kids were politically incorrectly fat on the grease of Kentucky Fried Chicken!
