Things I learnt this week: BBC Give F1 to Sky, SEO Forum Spam Backfires, Boris’ Bendy Bike

The BBC, who had the rights to show F1 for the next year, gave them to Sky and instead will show only half the races going forward. If you want to watch all the 2012 races you will need to pay minimum of £383 a year to Sky according to the Telegraph. This is a pretty good comment on the whole situation and I pretty much agree with it except that I might not follow any of the races at all.  But hey, the teams get an extra £1 million a year so what do they care. Hope their sponsors and the written press do.

Spamming a forum dedicated to prank phone calls a link to your SEO client isn’t the brightest thing to do. PLA is a pretty decent site so do check it out, there’s hours of funny things on there including free podcast downloads.
