Martin and Ruaridh carve a very cool pumpkin.
Outstanding work gentlemen!
Upcoming.org have just rolled out a nice bit of functionality for event organisers, RSVPs and Guestlists.
Organizing an event? We just added some new RSVP and guestlist options, like letting attendees bring guests, closing the guestlist, and printable guestlists for the day of your event!
I’d love to see more of my local venues make use of this.
It is becoming unprecedentedly difficult for anyone, anyone at all, to keep a secret. In the age of the leak and the blog, of evidence extraction and link discovery, truths will either out or be outed, later if not sooner. This is something I would bring to the attention of every diplomat, politician and corporate leader: the future, eventually, will find you out. The future, wielding unimaginable tools of transparency, will have its way with you. In the end, you will be seen to have done that which you did.

Unfortunately a crappy workload means I can’t get out to any gigs tonight, but I’m making the effort to get some tunes down onto paper and of course raising the odd glass of red wine to the great man. Has it really been two years?
Here’s to John, and here’s to music.
It’s very hard to describe music, that’s why we listen to it.

After all the speculation over the past few days it’s finally happened.
The two companies will continue to operate independently, Google said as it announced the news on Monday.
Damn, there go all the “GooTube” and “Yoogle” mashup parodies then.
Update: Interesting commentary about the deal at Read/Write Web:
There is a LOT of talk about the deal, but for me it’s significant as a watershed moment for the Web and online video. If Google is willing to spend $1.65B on the leading online video company, then they must believe that for both YouTube and the online video industry as a whole – there is a lot more growth to come.
What happens when signage decides it wants to say something else… haunting.
