The Mass Observation Archive: a UK social history writing project

"The Mass Observation Project (MOP) is a unique UK–based writing project which has been running since 1981. ... [it] differs from other similar social investigations because of its historical link to the original Mass Observation and because of its focus is on voluntary, self–motivated participation. It revives the early Mass Observation notion that everyone can participate in creating their own history or social science. The Mass Observers do not constitute a statistically representative sample of the population but can be seen as reporters or 'citizen journalists' who provide a window on their worlds.

The material is solicited in response to 'directives' or open–ended questions sent to them by post or email three times a year. The directives contain two or three broad themes which cover both very personal issues and wider political and social issues and events.

Periodic Table of Typefaces

"The Periodic Table of Typefaces is obviously in the style of all the thousands of over–sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools and homes around the world. This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today.

As with traditional periodic tables, this table presents the subject matter grouped categorically. The Table of Typefaces groups by families and classes of typefaces: sans–serif, serif, script, blackletter, glyphic, display, grotesque, realist, didone, garalde, geometric, humanist, slab–serif and mixed.

Each cell of the table lists the typeface and a one or two character 'symbol' (made up by me simply based on logic), the designer, year designed and a ranking of 1 through 100."

(Cam Wilde)

Drew's Script-O-Rama: free film and TV screenplays since 1995

"It was eons before I discovered that 'lauded' was a good thing.

Anyway, I'm more like that slack–assed buddy who doesn't return your phone calls, has owed you twenty bucks for the last 14 years and flirts with your wife when it comes to updating the site at times. For that I feel shame. Shame, I feel. But hey, it's 2010 now, and I'm a changed man. Besides, don't I get some slack since I've had this site up since 1995? Val Kilmer used to be Batman back then! And Mr. Showbiz left you high and dry, but your friend Drew, he sticks with you while simultaneously referring to himself in the third person!"

(Drew, 2010)

Talis Aspire: shared UK-wide Resource List Management System

"Talis Aspire takes into account the rise of e–content, evolving pedagogy techniques, higher student expectations and user–generated content. Talis are fairly sure that they got the stock management aspect right with Talis List, so they took as the starting point of development the needs of students and academics, as well as the library. Essentially the VLE is still seen as the hub that co–ordinates services, and Aspire is designed to work with existing systems. A lot of academics seem to be using Moodle to provide their course reading, but at present it still mostly consists of links within Moodle to word documents or PDFs. Aspire has been designed to fit in with the look of the institution so that it can work with Moodle without the students necessarily knowing that they have even left Moodle. It integrates with e.g. Shibboleth/Athens and student registries, so that it's possible for students to be presented with the relevant lists as soon as they start a course (rather than having to seek out their lists). One of the goals of Aspire is to maximize the value of e–resources, so in–line content plays a big part–library catalogue information is displayed on the page, and you can embed e.g. e–books, articles and videos within the list. This looked particularly useful so the students can get to content quicker and should help them to access more e–resources. YouTube is easy to embed, but I was pleased that they were currently talking to the BUFVC to see if Box of Broadcasts could be directly embedded."

(Paul Johnson, Royal Holloway, University of London, 23 April 2009)
