More Hammersley action

I’m pretty sure that if I ever actually meet Ben Hammersley he’ll be a kind of wild-haired, pop-eyed genius type with a pencil behind each ear and a short attention span. Whatever he looks like (and the photo on his web site is inconclusive – although the pipe should be a clue), he’s obviously a true hacker and he’s come up with another clever application of Movable Type that leverages the blogging groupmind to produce actual, living, breathing stuff. This time, he and some of his friends have turned the concept Lazyweb into a clever web site. Now everbody can tap into the Lazyweb (a privilege historically reserved for high traffic types). Ben explains how it works better than I could so check it out. He wrote an article about it in today’s Guardian.
