The lazyweb strikes absolute gold again. I also like the fact that the footer stresses the creator does not support either Labour or the Conservatives.
"A synagogue on the Greek island of Crete was hit by arsonists for the second time in three weeks, police said Saturday. The attack happened in the city of Chania when an unknown number of people entered the building, broke through a first-floor door and started a fire". For me that is the most heart-breaking and saddest piece of news to emerge from Chania since I left. Nikos Stavroulakis deserves better.
"This heading from a recent [Guardian] article shows a caption describing the content of the image. In fact the whole article uses meta data to frame their perspective on the piece; when was it published, on which of their sites it appeared, which reporters were involved and where were they based? The reporters are also linked, which is a great use of meta data as navigation."
