The Skillswap talk is over and I’m recovering with a drink at the Wi-Fi’d Grand Central pub (Andy Budd on one side of me, Jon Hirsch on the other).

There was a nice American chap at the talk that I got to talking to afterwards. It turned out to be Ryan from BD4D.

It turns out there’s going to be a BD4D event here in Brighton in September. Hopefully I’ll get to do a three minute madness.


I’m at the Skillswap event on PHP Objects and Patterns (mostly a sneak peak at PHP5).

My brain is full already.

Canterbury Gallery

My trip to Canterbury was a great success. Not only did I get to explore the magnificent cathedral grounds in depth, I also posted my first moblogged entry to this journal (using GPRS over Bluetooth).

Here’s a gallery of pictures from Canterbury cathedral I put together.

I also wanted to record some of the sounds of Canterbury. Specifically, I wanted to record the choir that was practicing for evensong. But on reflection, it would have been too intrusive to whip out a laptop in a church.

I had no such qualms about doing some field recording outside the church, however. At least, I didn’t until it started to rain.

Still, I managed to record the distant sound of church bells calling the faithful to service.
