Edinburgh Coffee Morning - flashing 'n' scratching
Fraser of camera and web design expertise recommended that I buy an external flash for cheap off eBay, something like the Nikon SP24, so that I don't keep having to underexpose my shots. That said, iPhoto normally does a grand job at making them look OK.
I wasted at least three minutes staring at Flickrvision, a world map that updates every second or so to show you the latest photo published and where it was published on the globe. I'm sure it'd be useful or at least cool for the entrance to a geography department.
The highlight was having a good play with Scratch, and seeing how wonderful it is for introducing programming to even the youngest of kids or novice affiliate marketers. ;-) Fraser even managed to make a demo/parody for Edinburgh Coffee Morning today.
Mike wasn't able to join us F2F today since he was down in deepest darkest Cornwall, and it seems on my return to the office that we all missed each other for a video call on Skype by about three minutes. Another time. A good few people did manage to get along, though, and confirmed that we might well be having Edinburgh Aperitif Early Evening some time towards the end of June chez Jamie, and end of term party if you will.
See you all there next week!
