Daily View 2×2: 15 January 2010

Welcome, Daily Viewers, to January 15th – and a public engagement special.

There's a plane in the Hudson. I'm on the ferry going to pick... on TwitpicA year ago today US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing into New York’s Hudson River. Eyewitness Janis Krums took this famous photo of the plane (right) and immediately shared it with the internet via Twitter, thus proving the website could be used for so much more than telling the world what you had for breakfast. (The only twitpic photo that’s come close since then was of a fox on the London Underground, but I live in hope and carry a camera…)

And as Mark reminds us, today’s a very good day for having your say on MPs’ expenses.

2 Must-Read Blog Posts

What are other Liberal Democrat bloggers saying? Here are two posts that have caught the eye from the Liberal Democrat Blogs aggregator:

  • A vote for ‘None of the above’ is a vote for pusillanimity
  • Adam Bell at Decline of the Logos: from fence-sitting to barricading the streets.

  • Enquiries and the state of Brown’s trousers – a historical note
  • MKNE political information looks at public protest, 1812-style.

Spotted any other great posts in the last day from blogs that aren’t on the aggregator? Do post up a comment sharing them with us all.

    @ Arnold Kiel "A complete win for the EU". No need to seem so pleased about it, Mr. Kiel.

    Conservative Home is currently a joy to read. Even JRM has been accused of being a traitor to the Brexit cause😀.
