If you’re anywhere within travelling distance of the south coast of England, be sure to keep your diary free for November 11th. On that date, Brighton will play host to Europe’s first Web 2.0 conference: d.Construct 2005.

This is going to be a grassroots affair, which means that it’s going to intimate, informal and fun. Andy’s got the full story on how the event came about.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it. I’m going to be in Seattle with Jessica. She’ll be attending the American Translator’s Association conference. I’ll be hanging out and generally having a good time.

I am really looking forward to going to Seattle (one of my favourite places) but it’s a real shame that I’m going to miss the inaugural d.Construct event. I’m sure it’s going to be a great event, presumably the first of many to come.

Maybe I can organise some kind of live video link-up…

Two days ago we had very, very windy weather here in Brighton. It whipped the sea up into an impressive cauldron of loud, crashing waves.

You know those posters of Osama Bin Laden that protesters in Bangladesh are waving? Well, the collage of pictures of Bin Laden are culled from many sources including the internet.

I remember reading through the Encycolepdia Brittanica as a kid in Ireland and reading that the world’s biggest aquarium was in Baltimore.
