    Great to see Blaise Agüera y Arcas of Photosynth fame making the TR35 list for 2008 . Blaise’s talks at TED and other events are a great source of inspiration for my own weak efforts at making technology look simple, making it relevant, and telling the...

    Vista Ultimate on my MSI Wind (Advent)

    • 2 Comments
    No sooner had I said I was on the bandwagon than Ben pinged me to say he had the same machine and had been running Vista quite happily on it. That sounded positive: I've been trying hard to get used to XP again, but much, much prefer Vista. Handily I...

    A quick video of my brave wife, the redoubtable LadyH, being thrown out of a plane at 10,000ft. No, I wasn’t holding the camera. If you look very closely at the take off, you can see me standing by the skip, holding Evan, shaking and weeping. Well done...

    Stevecla keeps us up to date with Mesh availability: it’s already available in the UK. If you’ve spoken to me recently you’ll know I’m very excited about Mesh – both from a Media, but also general technology perspective.

    MicroQuest – Making a Real Map

    • 1 Comments
    Our test map is a bit boring and doesn't really give us the opportunity to test out the pathfinding and see it working in practice (if it does...) In this instalment, we're going to load up some XML representing a map using LINQ and then amend our WPF...
