Another week another conference

Writing about web page

Just got back from the Learning on Screen conference. Some interesting stuff there – I’m particularly looking forward to is the British Library sound archive going online next week. I was down for doing a presentation on the Streaming Theatres project – ref

Stevens, J. and Childs, M. (2006) “Streaming Theatres” Learning on Screen Conference, Birmingham, 18th to 19th September, 2006

More about the Streaming Theatres project is at the Stream Team website – that’s also a useful resource for obtaining information about video streaming.

Traffic was almost at a standstill due to a lorry having flipped upside down on the southbound carriageway. Well “due to” is maybe not true. On Thursday I left at 2:00 (I was coming down with a cold) and it took 2 hours 40 minutes to do what is a 40 minute journey if I leave at 7:00. Due to the roadworks. What’s even more annoying is that it’s the third time they’ve had roadworks on that stretch of motorway since I’ve been working here. Surely it would make more sense to make the road out of something that doesn’t need fixing every three years. Or is that too obvious? I guess I’ll have to accept that I’m practically marooned here during the day.

I’m going to start a “what grinds my gears” category. I can then vent about the stuff that really annoys me.
