Okay, it's been a looong week, it's 2:20am, my cab leaves for the airport at 4:00 and I haven't packed yet. So there are two chances of a decent post this week...
In all fairness, the dazzling array of targets hasn't exactly allowed one to focus one's thoughts - I mean, I've been hammering away on the Tweet button like a chimp on speed. So all I can usefully do is commend that frenetic feed to you, as a parting gift.
But if I had to choose, these would be my top 8:
- Zero Hedge: on whether the US and Europe will track Japan's 21 year slide (and counting);
- Spectator: that Rebekah Brooks statement on phone-hacking in full;
- Naked Capitalism: Partying on the Edge of the Eurozone Volcano - I love that title;
- Naked Capitalism: Fukushima Cover Up Unravels;
- Guardian: What Twitter thinks of the News of the World, visualised;
- P2P Banking: The US Government Accountability Office's Guide to US Regulation on P2P Lending;
- Schumpeter: On being sacked for telling tales 'through' the media; and
- Chris Marsden's observations on what the Dead Parrot Sketch and UK Media regulation have in common.
And, hey, I have a whole hour left to pack. So time for a little light entertainment:
