Friday Night Links

1. John Sylvan, the inventor of K-Cups, does not himself use the product. "They're kind of expensive to use. Plus, it's not like drip coffee is tough to make."

2. Animated 3D computer model of London before the Great Fire.(Tip of the hat to Open Culture.)

3. The Peaky Blinders gang no longer existed by the time of the Great War; the television series of the same name is actually based on the exploits of a later gang called the Birmingham Boys. (For an informative account of the origins and fate of the gang's leader, Billy Kimber, see this piece in the Birmingham Mail.)

4. An analysis of the first four Star Trek feature films, based solely on their use of shots containing space and spaceships. (And here is part two of the analysis, which covers films five through ten.)
