I visited the site of Magna Carta today and it was literally tied up with red tape. You could not make it up.

Borders are good. Borders are the guarantee of freedom, of law, of diversity in thought, of eccentricity, of experiments in living. Without borders there's nowhere to hide, nowhere to be different, nowhere to run when government goes bad.

And yes, at my very own St Mary Aldermary another fine example of a place to spend time without the social pressure that comes with more commercial settings.

A wonderful article. I would add the Regency Café to the list of such places in London, especially in the afternoon.

It’s the same reason why Constitutional Monarchy is the best form of government.

What isn’t understood by those who flog off such buildings is the importance of aesthetics for the legitimacy of authority. Their beauty and grandeur is a positive force, both for those who govern in them, and for the rest of us governed outside of them.

Listening to #6 on mouse multitasking. In iOS 12 you can record custom gestures that are then available in the Assistive Touch menu. I’m wondering if those are available to be assigned to mouse buttons? Hacky way to trigger multitasking with mouse?

I have a physical copy, a 23rd edition I think, which after many years of searching I found in a charity shop for £5. It still had a price label on it for £112

This is fantastic. An essential part of our not-quite-unwritten constitution now freely available to the public. Long overdue.

Really enjoying GoodNotes 5, but still missing presentation mode (hidden UI on external displays) from GoodNotes 4. Any timetable for when that feature will be implemented? Thanks!

I love . Just as I prepare to start teaching GCSE Computer Science for the first time next year, he starts releasing teaching materials for it! Thanks Jamie.
