The Tardy Friday Five

The Tardy Friday Five

Yes it's Saturday but here are a few titbits from our week for you.  

1. Acoustic Anomalies & Echo Locations

After I tweeted about how a good echo is a small pleasure people tweeted me places with special acoustics. 

I have collected them together here 

2. Porridge

3. We didn't win a British Book Design and Production Award

But we were very proud to be nominated for our book I Wonder What I'm Thinking About.

The awards were hosted by the marvellous Adam Kay, and if you haven't read his book, This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor, you are a huge fool and you should pop out now and get it.

4. Christina Lamb 

On Wednesday night we saw the inspirational Christina Lamb give a talk about her life as a foreign correspondent, starting with an unexpected wedding invitation from Benazir Bhutto which led her to Karachi in 1987 when she was just 22 and on to Afghanistan to cover the mujaheddin fighting the Soviet Union. 

You can watch her Tedx talk here 

5. And finally


Bye for now xx
