100 Years of Bond

So we missed this back in May, on the 100th birthday of Ian Fleming.

The Times (London-style) dished up a very slick feature called 100 Years of Bond.

It mixes odd notes from Fleming’s life (f’rinstance, Winston Churchill wrote the Times obituary for Fleming’s dad in 1917) with his love affairs and then the release dates of the various James Bond novels and movies.

I don’t think I knew that Live and Let Die and Moonraker were the first two Bond novels after the original, Casino Royale.

Plus, the interface itself is a wonderfully slick use of the web. For Bond fans, a great way to spend a quick 10 minutes.
