Lib Dig Pig #9

Welcome to the ninth edition of Lib Dig Pig, being a roundup of non-Lib Dem oriented gems on the internet, as voted by Lib Dem members using Lib Dig (if you aren’t one, and are a Lib Dem member, sign up here:

It’s a pretty random list this week:

1. Charlie Brooker to focus on news in BBC4 Screenwipe spin-off (Media Guardian), submitted by Stephan Tall: “’Guardian columnist Charlie Brooker is to take a satirical look at the news media in a spin-off from his BBC4 show Screenwipe.’ Yay 🙂 If you missed the 2007 Screenwipe news episode, you can glimpse its brilliance here:

2. Brian Coleman’s interests – the wordle’s out (vickim57), submitted by Alex Foster: “Fat cattery via Wordle ”

3. Manchester ‘could pilot ID cards’ (BBC News), submitted by Nigel Ashton: “Manchester could be one of the testing grounds for the government’s ID cards scheme, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has said during a visit to the city.”

4. Confidence In Blog Postings Over Time (SlideShare), submitted by Iain: “It’s like there’s someone in the room with me. ”

5. Chart Porn: Create Your Own Original Star Trek Story (, submitted by me: “40 years too late sadly.”

Top Videos

We didn’t have a video this week. So as an alternative, I thought I’d pick out a random vlog. This one has a certain inspired genius, don’t you think?

Small Print

The rules for inclusion here are simple: they must have been “dug” for the first time in the last seven days and they can’t be Lib Dem-related or come from a Lib Dem blog. The top rated articles will be listed here. For the purposes of this column, my votes will be discounted. Finally, I may bend or break any of these rules as I see fit (this is absolutely terrible and I am dreadfully sorry about it).

PS LibDig the easy way – add the LibDig bookmarklet to your toolbar!

    Medea? Penis envy? Seriously? I thought she went psycho and killed her kids to spite Jason for doing the dirty on her with Creon’s daughter and getting her banished from Corinth, where she knows no-one, after she’d killed half her family and done all sorts of other epic things to help him get the golden fleece. Where does the penis envy come into it?
