My Eyes! My Beautiful Eyes!

Writing about web page http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/other_sports/olympics_2012/6722763.stm

The logo for the 2012 London Olympics really is hideous. If you haven't seen it, there's a picture of it and an opinion poll on the BBC News website.

Apparently it took a year to design, cost £400,000, and Lord Coe believes the logo, which will be used for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, will convey the right message for the Games. Presumably that "right message" is that they're both a waste of taxpayers' money...

£400k is a bit much; readers of BBC News have been sending in much better logos (well, a couple aren't too good, and some are nice but not really logos...) for free! Perhaps it would have been quicker, cheaper, and easier to just hold a national competition...

I particularly like numbers 1 and 6 here and numbers 1, 2, 6, and 8 here. Of course my absolute favourite - one which really sums up the essence of "London 2012" - is number 11 here; it's just brilliant.

I hate MySpace

Writing about web page http://mashable.com/2007/06/06/best-myspace-layouts-that-dont-look-like-myspace-at-all/

Well, I don't so much hate MySpace itself; I'm sure a lot of people value it as a service (I don't use it, nor do I want to, but still...). What I hate is the ugly monstrosities some people create for their profile page; flashing backgrounds, ridiculously large text, shocking SPAG, text and background colour combinations that are impossible to read, auto-play music that isn't even that good, cluttered pages that take forever to load, marquees, hundreds of animated GIFs, and anything else I've forgotten...

That's why this page is so great; it shows some examples of MySpace pages that actually look nice. If only more people would put some effort into their profile's design; of at least put less effort into making it "exciting"...
