Ireland: Beyond 2022 (digital archives)
A project is under way to digitally recreate the building and contents of the Public Record Office of Ireland, which were destroyed by an explosion and fire at Dublin’s Four Courts in 1922. The six-story Victorian building went up in flames on 30 June 1922 during the Civil War. Seven centuries of Ireland’s historical and genealogical records were lost, seemingly forever.

The completed virtual reality project will be made available on the centenary of the Four Courts fire in 2022. The project website is http://www.beyond2022.ie.

You can learn a lot more in an article by Philip Bromwell at http://bit.ly/2H3khPN. A video that explains the project is also available at the same address.

How Facebook Is Killing Comedy - Splitsider
Facebook has created a centrally designed internet. It’s a lamer, shittier looking internet. It’s just not as cool as an internet that is a big, chaotic space filled with tons of independently operating websites who are able to make a living because they make something cool that people want to see.

A time of giving? Christmas Spending vs Foreign Aid
In 2015 the Dutch banking company ING conducted a survey of spending on Christmas gifts across 14 countries. The results make for interesting reading, with Brits saying they planned to spend an average of €420 on Christmas presents, and Romanians planning to spend 32% of a month’s salary. This got me thinking about the overall spending on Christmas gifts, and how this would compare to national spending on another kind of giving, that of Official Development Assistance (ODA), commonly thought of as foreign aid.

Combining ING’s data with the adult population size of each country enabled me to produce a rough estimate of how much each country spends on Christmas gifts. We can then compare this overall spending figure to each country’s yearly spending on ODA. These findings are summarised in the table below.
