Friday saw the start of this years SXSW interactive, film and music festivals in Austin Texas, and once again they highlight the scourge of swag: the ‘stuff we all get’ that soon becomes the stuff we don’t want.
This Friday is Red Nose Day, the main fundraising event in support of Comic Relief, a charity that supports projects in the UK and Africa.
It seems I have a new challenge for March.
February coming to a close means I can conclude my month long challenge to post to this blog each day. Having only written 14 entries, it’s a challenge for which I only half succeeded.

I’ve not been able to get enough of Christian Bale’s recent rant on the set of Terminator 4, yet sadly there has only been audio available for this moment of madness.

Today was largely taken up by a flight back to London from San Francisco, where I spent the last ten days.
I have been using Movable Type for a number of years, yet the template code required to present an archived list of entries, grouped by month has always evaded me.
