The Main Feature

Found animated GIF I originally posted on my Tumblr, thought I'd share it here too.

I received a counterfeit pound coin the other day. They've become a lot more common lately and, prompted by the failing economy, brought about a small media frenzy last September, making us not only aware of their existence but also able to recognize the difference.

The thing with fake coins isn't so much about them being fake, but a problem of recognition. If nobody noticed, it wouldn't be a problem, it's when you browse through your pocket change and notice that the two faces of the coin don't line up right or that the cross on the side of the coin isn't fully detailed that the problems begin. You're either down a pound or, if you try to use it and can't feign ignorance, you're a fraud!

Wikipedia Loves Art at the V&A

This February Wikipedia is loving art at the Victoria and Albert museum here in London! A fun opportunity to finally make that contribution to everyone's favorite wiki and take part in a large scale free culture/open media event.
