Finding out that FOWD 2010 will be in London from Monday 17th to Wednesday 19th of May via a Facebook mailshot this morning. Fingers crossed I can save enough pennies to go!

WOO Themes have released a ‘lifestream‘ WordPress theme which is quite cute.

FontShop on 2010 typography trends, some lovely blocky fonts in there.

YouTube starts to embrace the lovely HTML5.

The joy of sharing

According to Mike Walsh’s Futuretainment, the original Sony Walkman was designed to have 2 headphone jacks. This makes me feel a little less guilty and shy about owning one of these.

Sharing is often a good experience. Sharing your tunes with someone can be heaps of fun. Take a magical mystery tour through someone’s iPod on shuffle and revel in the tales of why and when you both bought that same obscure album. Brilliant fun.

3.5mm splitter in Maplins: less than a fiver. Exposing a closet Gareth Brooks fan: priceless.
