May 2010: first (only) trip to NYC, went to Shake Shack at the Flatiron but the line was an hour long on a blazing hot day. So we hit up Eisenberg’s nearby; had an egg cream I clearly still remember > @susanchumsky > @MacDara #tweet

The Watt List circa 2000, before it moved to Yahoo! Groups even. Made acquaintances I still have now, but only ever met one other member IRL > @Humanstein #tweet

I concur. This is absolutely rotten. Forget ‘history won’t be kind…’ etc; right now the BBC is a propaganda mouthpiece for hatred > @KatyMontgomerie #tweet
