- Fascinating Newsweek story about treating people whose hearts have stopped… Apparently if a patient’s heart has stopped beating for five minutes or more, it’s not that the brain starts degrading but that it will degrade catastrophically if oxygen is restored rapidly.
- xkcd’s awesome map of online communities will, I suspect, surface in a million corporate talks this year… I think I live right in the middle in Flickrland…
- My namesake Tom Coates Jr is busy getting into trouble for producing sculpture of women with their tops off made of wire… The sculpture is a bit Athena 1987, but it’s fun to hear about what this particular doppelg√§nger is up to. Other name twins are researchers in HIV and a watercolour artist.

The map is nice, but where are the non-English speaking communities? I do realise that many of the sites listed have non-English versions e.g. Yahoo, and Xanga is very popular in Hong Kong. But China has massive online social networks of it’s own, and they can’t be the only ones. Korean, Japanese, French, Spanish? It’s a bit of a gripe I know, and it isn’t really reasonable to expect the makers of the map to be able to access all the non-English sites and make sense of them (and that the map is a bit of fun), but surely they could point out that the map is not necessarily complete.
Do I really sight a small outcrop called ‘Gays of Web 2.0’ on the rocky shoreline of Deviant Art?
I must steer my Skypecopter thataways…
@Adrian: methinks you’re taking the map *far* too seriously, dude
Imagine my surprise that Tom Coates Jr is one town over from me – I’ll have to go see the sculpture in person.
