I’ve been up in Glasgow, Scotland,  for the past four days, and haven’t had the time to do any updates…. Heading back down south today…planning to attend BJP’s Vision 2010 tomorrow in London… Thought I might not have a chance to do a new post until Saturday, when I return home to Brighton, but it occurred to me that this Megabus has wireless, so I might as well make use of the time…

I’ve been following Twitter closely every day, and I have loads of stuff to share…
