Memories of the BBC Micro from four of the architects of the machine from the early 1980’s.
The BBC Micro was, for many in the UK, their first introduction to home computing.
Fantastic machine – I had one and cut my teeth on BBC BASIC.

Inspired by WordCamp Dallas 2008 I’m floating the idea of WordCamp UK at some point this year.
The idea has already gone around a number of WordPress mailing lists and elsewhere, and in the light of feedback I’m posting this to ascertain the level of interest.
Don’t hesitate to add a comment to this post so the practicality of such an event can be gauged.
I’m happy to take part in organising such an event if it seems to be a good idea – it would be useful even at this early stage to see if anyone else is prepared to be involved in making arrangements etc.
Here’s one description of WordCamp:
WordCamp is a (semi) BarCamp-style conference where users of the Open Source blogging software WordPress can meet and share tips and experiences with one another.
Some initial thoughts to get the discussion going:
Finally a list of previous WordCamps I’m aware of:
Plus WordCamp Report for reference.
Update Saturday 22 March 2008 at 1531: I’ve set up a WordCamp UK mailing list.
Update Monday 24 March 2008 at 1522: Here’s the RSS feed for comments to this post.
Update Thursday 27 March 2008 at 0649: WordCamp Melbourne and Argentina added to list above.
Update Monday 31 March 2008 at 0028: I’ve now set up a WordPress UK wiki.

Good summary of the current situation surrounding Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.
The piece concludes:
The conversation [with Dean Hachamovitch IE general manager] shows that while Microsoft is clearly serious about implementing better web standards in IE8, the battle for control over which technology dominates the web is not over yet.

The deal with Bernie Ecclestone’s Formula One Management, includes coverage of practice sessions, and is understood to be initially for a year.
From my connection to the net the feed was struggling at times – not surprising given the speed of the cars resulting in plenty of changing picture data.
It was disappointing the original 4 by 3 aspect ratio of the pictures from Australia had been ‘squashed’ into 16 by 9 on ITV’s site.
The race was certainly one of the most unpredictable and exciting Formula One race I’ve seen for a number of years and show the rule changes have put more emphasis on driver skills.
