This is a project I've been involved with in my spare time. It's been fascinating to hear people's stories of how they got into computer science and what they've been able to do with it.  It makes me wish I had kept studying it myself... :)

This ranks up there with Sesame Street in my favourite all time Doodles... and although I took the tube this morning, there was nothing about the anniversary on it, not even in Metro [Correction: I've just been told there was an article about stamps issued for it buried on p23.  I didn't get that far in my reading :) ]
Today is the 150th anniversary of the London Tube and there is a gorgeous google.co.uk doodle to celebrate. 
London may not have the best underground in the world, but it has the best underground map!

I can't wait to get my hands on this to have a play, especially with the parchment replica board.  Monopoly will never be the same again :-)
