A Trigger Almanac: 2007

Do You See + FT + Proven By Science + Pumpkin Publog + The Brown Wedge + TMFD/2 comments • 971 views

Here’s a selection of some of the most entertaining/interesting posts on the site this year – thoroughly incomplete, as it doesn’t include much of the frothing ephemera that makes FT so good (in my partisan view). As usual when I look at the FT archives I’m enormously amused, amazed that there’s so much of it, and frustrated that loads of good ideas don’t get followed up, but such is the way of the blog.  Huge thanks to all contributors and a Happy New Year to all readers.

    I had missed Marcello’s reimagining of the Radio 1 album, which is genius and/or hilarious.

    Thanks Tom for reminding me how bad Spamalot was. It really, really was bad bad bad…
