I re-discover this every so often. Worth a listen.

Program for SREcon Europe is up - I'll be giving a talk on some of the stuff I've been doing at Google for the past few years.

I won't tell anyone aside from all internet users if you don't.

Even eejits can occasionally write cleverly, it seems.

Dublin people; you know where to go for all your stationery needs from now on. This is terrific.

Free, captive portal free WiFi. USB and power at every seat in the terminal. Efficient security and self service everything. San Jose airport might be my new favourite place on earth. Sorry, friends and loved ones. I'm home.

You've not spent much time in Asian airports, I'm picking.

I have a general-purpose out-of-office message for when I'm traveling for work. I think I may have actually written this while trapped in the Inexorable Maze of Dunno at one point.

The last time I went through the US it took about 10 seconds. Bag on roller, walk through magnetoscope, pick up bag (, wait hours for my flight).

The last time I went through the UK I had fast track and there was no queue. It still took about 5 minutes. They seemed to think that was a great success. It didn't occur to them that if there had been 10 people waiting and they each took 5 minutes it would be a disaster.

Just to repeat -- I was Heathrow's biggest defender until less than a year ago. Everyone else was always saying how terrible it was and I kept saying if you know where to go it's great because it's consistent and there are nice corners. But last year something got much much worse quite suddenly.

This chap here.
Offence and Free Speech. I was asked to speak on a panel about offence and free speech post Charlie Hebdo. I always quite like the idea of speaking at some serious discussion, but in practice I just make everybody uncomfortable and they all smile at me uneasily in the way a posh cafe owner does ...
