Geroge Monbiot, hosted on The Guardian
Guardian ecology columnist George Monbiot has listed his earnings and savings and said all journalists should do the same. I am not sure if he is just showing off about how much he earns – more than £60,000 from the Guardian – but he cannot be serious.
Journalists should feel no more compunction to reveal their earnings and savings than anyone else. And it would be a mountain of work for the many of us who are freelance and such scrambled data would prove meaningless. I’ll have a go at explaining why. (more…)
My daughter, Molly, is part of the Common Dance troop in this Guardian video (link opens new window).
The show opened last night and was sublime. It is truly beautiful.

The opening credit pic of this video is this screengrab below. My daughter is the girl on the right in mid-air (cut out).
One of our Macbook hard drives died this morning, coming on top of all my technical problems earlier.
The Macbook is now in the Mac hospital in Greenwich, otherwise known as Logo Systems (link opens new window). These are great guys who have helped me out when I’ve had water poured down mine, and all sorts.
