I’ve just gotten back from the Pizza on Rails pre-conference event. I was a bit nervous, because by all accounts I knew nobody who was going. Thankfully I bumped into Paul Hammond within 5 minutes of arriving. He introduced me to Rob who deals with parliament.uk. That sounds like fascinating stuff—over 12Tb of data, including all past legislation and amendments. Lots of SGML though, poor man.
In turn, Rob introduced me to Paul Battley who will be heckling my Unicode talk. I’d better tread carefully. 🙂
Eventually, we wandered over to another pub, which was slightly less noisy. The thunder storm going on around us was fabulously entertaining.
Anyway, now I’m at the office surveying the remnants of the same storm that I have to cycle home in. Bleargh.
