    As you’ve probably heard by now, a number of explosions have gone off in the London Underground system and on a number of buses. Tony Blair has just confirmed it was a terrorist attack. Thanks to those of you IMing to see if I’m OK.

  • City of Sound

    City of Sound is a new addition to my blog roll. Written by Dan Hill, it’s a London-centric weblog with a somewhat grand raison d’être.

  • Snow?

    In the middle of Winter? Who’d have thought it… From the Multimap webcams (actually this is quite a lot of snow for central London):

    Tickets for UX London 2010 are now on sale with a massive £200 early bird discount. Highlights for 2010 include Bill Moggridge, Scott McCloud, Kristina Halvorson & JJG to name a few. Last year sold out and was hugely over subscribed so get in quick!

  • History repeating

    I was just glancing through a journal Jeffrey Veen wrote in 1991, whilst he was studying theatre in London. Almost exactly twelve years later, he could have lifted an entry straight from this week’s papers: The U.S. declared war and attacked Iraq tonight. Bush will…

  • Down & out

    I saw a commuter with a broken leg this morning. I don’t mean it was in plaster, I mean he’d broken it just that minute. The poor guy was lying on the pavement outside City Thameslink in obvious ‘distress’, surrounded by a discarded brief case and flight…

    A quick review of the amazing Public Lettering walk website.

    I am ridiculously excited about this coming weekend. It is this weekend that the Tour de France visits England for the first time since 1994, and only the third time in its history. Get out and see it!

    So thanks then, terrorists. You’ve just succeeded in bringing the families of millions of Londoners that bit closer together, giving them an increased love of their city and an enhanced appreciation of their way of life.

  • Apple Store Mania

    So the Apple Store in London has finally opened. My bro had intended to get up super early and get himself a Lucky Bag. Even if he hadn’t slept through his 6am alarm, reports indicate he would still have been 12 hours too late joining the queue.

  • Dunwich Dynamo

    I’m tired; stiff and tired. Over Saturday night and into Sunday morning, I joined friends on the Dunwich Dynamo, a 120 mile night ride from Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast. It was to be the longest ride any of us had cycled in one day.

  • Hackday London

    Hackday London was fantastic. Andy Hume and I designed and developed a hack by way of a web app called Get Us Organised. It proved quite popular.

  • Secure wifi

    During another Geekend in London, Andy brought up the question of how to make his home wifi network secure but open. Well, it?s funny how these things work out: upon catching up with my RSS feeds, there lay the answer.

  • grinning

    Walking from the station to the office this morning, a peculiarly large number of people appeared to be smiling; almost chuckling to themselves. While this is entirely laudable behaviour, in London it is enough to make one feel somewhat paranoid. On a different note,…

  • Super Furry Kraft

    Hot on the heels of Colly’s review of Super Furry Animals in Nottingham, I once more had the pleasure of seeing SFA at London’s Brixton Academy. It certainly wasn’t the mellow gig that Colly saw; this was SFA rocking away in big style.

  • No Butt, don’t shoot !

    England through, Argentina out. Smashing. In the Guardian on Brazil’s 5–2 mauling of Costa Rica: “do not under any circumstances miss the highlights of this match tonight. It’s better than sex. Well, it’s certainly better than any sex I’ve…

  • New browsers

    Some recent browser releases: Mozilla has released 1.3 Alpha and 1.02. Opera has released 7 for Windows Beta 2. Apple has released Safari Beta 2. For web developers, the last one is of particular note as Safari will presumably be making its way on to all new Apple machines. …

  • Meke-a thees my hume-a pege-a

    You may have heard that MSN does not work correctly in the latest version of Opera, because MSN sends Opera 7 different HTML and CSS files than it sends to earlier versions of the browser. Well Our Norwegian friends have got their own back by releasing the Bork edition of…

  • Normality returns

    Thanks for your support. I don’t normally get political here at Clagnut, and even less often do I get angry and sweary, so I thought I’d show any new readers what I normally write about, by way of a top ten most visited posts this fortnight.

  • Ajax training workshop

    Following on from the great response we had to d.Construct, Clearleft is proud to be putting on an Ajax training course early next year.

    Pepys’ Diary is a weblog with daily entries from Samuel Pepys’s diary, starting from 1st January 1660. I don’t know how well known Samuel Pepys is outside of Britain (anyone care to enlighten?), but every schoolkid here learns about him in History. As a…

  • Reasons for broadband

    Household broadband purchasers are more pragmatic then ISPs seem to think. And if marketeers think that filling broadband with whizzy stuff is a good idea, then their swing-top bin will soon overflow.

  • Great Escape 2007 day one

    The Great Escape has begun. The second year of ‘Europe’s leading new music festival’ has come to Brighton again, with even more bands and venues.

  • Conference diversity from an organiser’s perspective

    Clearleft we know we have a responsibility to the industry to help redress the gender balance, and that means putting together diverse line-ups at our conferences. This is much easier said than done, but difficult doesn’t mean impossible.

  • Web fonts on the horizon

    Håkon Wium Lie recently intimated that the forthcoming release of Opera will support downloadable fonts. Great news for web designers, but is it bad news for type foundries?

  • In conversation with Brighton station about CCTV

    A couple of days ago I was stuck at Brighton railway station, watching trains get delayed and eventually cancelled. While sat on the concourse I noticed the sheer amount of CCTV and various surveillance devices in plain view all around the station.
