TWTWTW: Why it’s good to talk

That Was The Week That Was

More gems from the interweb

Some of the best writing I’ve come across recently has been through serendipity, mainly thanks to the retweets of people I happen to follow on Twitter. A couple of week’s ago it was a beautiful piece based on the I have a pencil scene in  V for Vendetta , this week it’s a heart-rending piece on why it’s good to talk.

Ilya Zhitomirskiy was a bright light in silicon valley, he was young, intelligent and full of ideas. He committed suicide at the age of just 22, this is a brilliant post which encourages anyone who feels alone to talk to someone. It’s good advice, even if we don’t always take it.

Dolly bows out

Non cricket fans may not have heard of Basil D’Oliveira, he was a man who played a central role in beginning the end of apartheid. Jonathan Agnew remembers him.

Unleash the Hound

Nice piece by comedian Rufus Hound on humour, friendship and the fine art of taking the piss

Picture perfect

These are brilliant – pencil vs camera images
