Huge news today... our company, Lanyrd, has been acquired by Eventbrite!
 
Lanyrd is becoming part of the Eventbrite family! We’re confident that Lanyrd will be better than ever as a result, and we’re launching some handy new integrations with Eventbrite to celebrate.

Build 14 went out earlier today, which now includes offline storage of event information. Give it a go - it even uses an Android notification for the offline progress bar.

Are +The Onion really erecting a paywall, or is this a parody of horrible paywall popovers?

We'd still love your feedback as an Android user - the app helps with event discovery as well, so you don't have to be in the room at a conference for it to make sense from a testing point of view.

I pressed the wrong button at some point and now I have two Google+ accounts - this one, and one for my @lanyrd.com Google Apps account.

I want to get rid of the @lanyrd.com one (so people don't add the wrong "me" to their circles)... but when I go to delete that Google+ account it warns me that "You won't be able to use the "Sign in with Google" button to log in to third-party apps."

This is no good, because I use "Sign in with Google" with that account for a bunch of important tools such as Trello.

Am I completely stuck here?

In the settings (https://www.google.com/settings/plus) under profile you can make the profile invisible in search results. - not very helpful: I searched for "invisible" and came up with nothing.

The option is marked "Help others discover my profile in search results." if you're looking for it; and you should deselect it.

+Simon Willison an option available for my many Google accounts was simply slapping a company logo over my image - so if you mail me at @mediauk.com you get my avatar, but a +Media UK logo over it. That helps for things like hangouts and others - so others know which is the 'right' account. (I only have one G+ account, though, these days.)

We added a speaker directory to Lanyrd last week and it includes a well-populated Python speakers section - take a look.

The wraps from here represent the best lunch in the Shoreditch area, bar none. They're absolutely enormous and stuffed with tasty things. The Seaside Wrap is particularly notable - a generous plate of fish, chips and peas... in a wrap. Eating here every day probably isn't a good idea. My all time favourite was the German wrap - pork, sauerkraut, apple sauce and a rich seam of crackling up the middle - but it's very rarely on the menu. You can see the day's specials on their Facebook page (or subscribe to their daily email). We've nicknamed the place "chaos wrap" because it's incredibly popular at lunch time and the queuing mechanism is somewhat chaotic - your best bet is to wait for one of the staff to shout out "anyone else want an X wrap?" and just say yes.
