Reponsibility anonymous

It’s 2225 on Wednesday 17 May. I am sat, as I am so many evenings, at my computer in my room at 32A Aristotle Road. The blind is open, and the drops from the evening’s rain are still strewn across the window panes. In that pane I see my reflection. […]

Aftonbladet Europablogg

Blog makes the big time: Aftonbladet

Once in a while something super-positive happens with this blog, and today seems to be such a day. The journalist Mats Engström on the Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet has set up a Europablogg to discuss various issues of EU politics. He currently has 6 links there – to Margot Wallström, Carl […]

Labour, the web, and an honest conversation?

The first parts of a sensible debate have just started in the Labour Party about the future of its website, and its presence on the web more generally. This stems from Labour’s relatively poor local election showing on 4th May, and subsequent comments made by Tony Blair in a letter […]

The joy of design, and browser evolution

I’ve spent a lazy weekend in London, mostly doing website work… Only this weekend has been website work with a difference! Instead of never-ending PHP and MySQL wrangles with Typo3, I have been working with WordPress to design a blog site. WordPress is so fast and so simple, and it […]


2 new websites launched: AMRIE & JEF-Malta

As ever I have been busy working on new website projects and have managed to launch two new sites in the last few days. The first is for AMRIE (The Alliance of Maritime Regional Interests in Europe). It’s a site using the Typo3 Content Management system and is notable for […]

Lingon Berry

Google and the blog

The version of this blog at the old address managed to attract quite some hits thanks to rankings in Google – try searching for Lingon Berry and you get this blog top of the list. But with the move to .eu all that was in jeopardy – links to the […]

Web Design Index page

Web Design Index 6 – a thoroughly pleasant book

While in Helsinki over the Easter weekend, I happened to be browsing in the shop of the Kiasma Modern Art museum (nice site actually – runs on Typo3, my favourite content management system) and came across an excellent book: the Web Design Index 6. The book contains 1002 small screenshots […]

eu domain flag

.eu frustrations

It’s always good to be a pioneer, especially if it’s something to do with both politics and technology. So on Friday 7th April I rushed to register the domain, and by Sunday 9th April everything was up and running – domain name directing to blog and website, POP3 mailboxes, […]

Margot Wallström campaigning

Blogging: will politics sit up and listen?

Today on BBC News Online there is this interesting piece about the relationship between blogging and business. The essential thrust of the article is that if businesses do not listen to the swell of opinion written on blogs their business will suffer. This inevitably leads me to wonder if and […]


7086 visitors to the old blog

All good things have to come to an end… 8th April 2006 marked the last day of Version 2 of the Jon Worth Euroblog. The design of the site has stayed the same as before, but the domain name has changed. The blog will from now on run from the […]

Pledgebank and patio heaters

Tony Blair received some positive publicity this week by volunteering to be a patron of a sports club in London if 100 other public figures volunteered to do the same. He used a website called PledgeBank to set this thing up. I had never heard of the site before and […]


Anger and fury about incompetent people

I probably should not have another rant on this blog about incompetent computer users, but I’m afraid I cannot resist it. Simply put, I have been writing little here over the last few days because I have – as ever – been spending far too many waking hours fixing damned […]
