Elegant Chaos News
Dominic Robinson pointed the Skate project out to me. It's an attempt to recreate SK8, which was a Lisp based RAD development environment developed by Ruben Kleiman at Apple's Advanced Technology Group - very cool.
Another friend, Royston Sellman, worked on this whilst he was at ATG, and it's something that I had access to whilst at ULTRALAB. Given my long standing interest in developing a new authoring environment, I'm pretty keen to follow this project's progress, and maybe even try to get involved.
A good night was had by all, and it was fun for me to catch up with all the old gang from my time at the lab.
Tom & I stayed at the same hotel (the event was in deepest, darkest Essex), and as we both at a loose end the next day we wandered into town together, had fun getting slightly lost in the Tate modern, and inevitably ended up in a pub bouncing ideas off each other.
I've just received an email from TfL about the Piccadilly Line. It looks like the Tufnell Park email was just an enormous coincidence!
It's a shame really, as I'd actually be quite grateful for a service which emailed me speculatively about disruption on services that I use a lot.
