Electro Magnetic Wave - the hackers conference on a boat, was great fun.  As always once it got going I forgot to take any pictures, but here's the highlights from what I did take.

Is this where newspapers are going? Reading between the lines here, you get the impression that having Nate extend his journalism would offend the old guard to a point where it would have been a fight and a slog, so he went an easier route, and web friendly news organisation instead.
Why did Nate Silver decide to leave The New York Times and accept an offer from ESPN? That's the cause of great speculation in media circles at the moment. As has been noted elsewhere, there's no question that The Times made a big pitch to keep him and that the effort to do so involved ...

Introduction
This is my personal Google+ Account.

I am a software architect working for the Government Digital Service, part of the Cabinet Office of the UK Government.
Described by one of my coworkers as an unstoppable force of nature, I've been known to organise training , conferences and events, as well as my day to day work.
I tend to be strongly opinionated on various technical issues but appreciate that opinion being challenged when I'm wrong and I'm always happy to change my mind or opinion on something.
