Here and there
I’ve seen the van several times, but this was the first opportunity for a good shot (regular readers will, of course remember this and this from the streets of Sheffield). Also from the streets of Sheffield is ex-Pulp front man Jarvis Cocker. He’s now in MySpace with a strange YouTube video and the track "Running the World" - both displaying that humour and political edge that you either love or hate. Away from here, I’ve been exploring the world of MUVEs. There’s a good potted history here. It seems that virtual worlds only really seemed to achieve their present popular form in the mid 1990s. So that’s quite a rapid trajectory into the schools of Barnsley!
