WordCamp UK presentation at London Bloggers

I gave a presentation on WordCamp UK last night at the June meeting of London Bloggers.

The presentation [pdf] seemed to go down postively at the well attended meeting at The Coach and Horses in Soho.

Afterwards Alexandra, Andy, Tim and myself made a detailed examination of the various beverages available from behind the bar from the vantage point of the Lego-like seating outside the pub.

New venue for WordCamp UK

The venue for WordCamp UK has been changed – it’s now going to be at The Studio in Birmingham.

This is very close to the previously planned venue and so should not prove to be a problem for those travelling from outside Birmingham.

Details of how to book tickets for the event, to be held 19-20 July 2008, will be released shortly.

For full details go to the WordCamp UK wiki.

Ice found on Mars?

It looks like the Phoenix Mars Lander may have found ice on Mars.

If the discovery of ice is confirmed it would vastly increase the chances of finding life on Mars now or evidence of life in the past.

Such a discovery would be likely to lead to a step change in our perception of the universe.
