AC/DC's 'Back In Black' at 35: Classic Track-by-Track Album Review http://blbrd.cm/8OrMgC
On AC/DC's Back In Black, half the song titles would make badass tattoo slogans, and the other half are things you'd say to someone in a bar at 2 a.m. This alone doesn't make the album that special (the same is more or less true for many of the band's LPs), but considering what these guys had just been through, it's pretty amazing, if not inspirational.

It's taken me 30 years to see AC/DC but it was well worth the wait. Quite possibly the greatest concert I've ever seen! #acdc #wembley #london

Skewed BBC Reporting - Surely Not?
Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed a pattern emerging in the reporting of digital competence and anything else schools ICT related by the BBC over the last year or so? I've just read this report by the BBC to yesterday's announcement from the Welsh G...

It's really starting to get to me now Rhys. I could provide a long list of articles from the BBC all talking about coding. I've just read the Wales Online piece on the announcement and there's not a single word about coding in it. There is certainly an agenda which the BBC are pushing. As I say in my post, coding is a skill that we want to develop in schools but it's just part of a much wider set of skills or competences that our pupils need. The BBC seem to be turning every piece on digital technology in schools in Wales into something about computer science. This seems to be very much driven from what has happened with the new computing PoS in schools in England. But talking to some very informed colleagues across the border, not everyone was happy with what happened there. I could go on, but I'll stop my rant now :-)

Stayed for one night. Hotel reception was in the middle of a refit. Room was clean and comfortable, but did find it a little too warm. Breakfast was good. Good spot for the tube and a short walk to Hampstead. Car parking was ok. Would use it again.

Just come back from a 2 night stay at the hotel with my wife. Very pleased with the hotel, situated in the Jewish quarter of the city and just a short walk to many of the tourist spots. WiFi in the hotel was fine, breakfast was decent and staff friendly. Very nice interior with a very 1930s art deco style. We didn't have the time to use the spa but there was one freely available and I believe there was a pool on the roof.
