KIlimanjaro at dawn 1 January 2006? Posted by Hello

Mount Kilimanjaro for Christmas!

That's the plan!

Spring has finally sprung!

Must have - I put the clocks forward on Saturday, ran all weekend, went to the gym, tidied my tax affairs, and the willow tree is in leaf. It'll be 18 degrees by Wednesday, which is the CC-UK launch by old hippy JP barlow in London.
I'll be in London because that's the EC eCulture workshop, as well as the meeting with David Cleevely. So April-May could be blocked out by that bid - or the CIE bid I've been working on for Creative Commons on Sunday morning.
It's St Paddy's week, it's Cheltenham, it's life!
Up to London Friday evening to see Paul and Kim's new arrival, and also for Saturday morning's Head of the River and the riigby! Wales were brilliant yesterday - wonder if they can stuff it up or if it's 1978 again - I was 9 years old, my last spring in Wales at The Grange, already bored! But I'll sink a couple of pints to them Saturday...

Spring sprung

Had dinner at a charming - if huge - barn in Great Tey last evening, with Richard Starnes, who turns out to be a loose head prop from Kentucky?! That was after he gave a very interesting cyberterrorism talk - which also turns out to demonstrate DOS and other hacker tools very well. I'll be supervising dissertations this summer based on some of this.
Lorna confirmed that Essex want me to teach next January - data protection and broadcasting. That gets me up to speed. In contrast, Monroe has not invited me to repeat my acclaimed summer school lecture - I wonder what his agenda is?
Also Colin Blackman confirmed that the seminar papers can be edited into a special issue of info.
Trying to get some bids together - makes me think that joining Rand might be better than the well-meaning shamateurism of academic consulting!
Hebrides trip continues to be planned by Greg - 2 more weeks and some fresh sea air:)
