This year’s Oxford Literary Festival lasts a little longer than in previous years, and there are some good speakers to look forward to. My personal highlight will be an appearance by Bad Science‘s Ben Goldacre on Sunday 5th April at the McKenna room. Also appearing of note are Ian McEwan, Aravind Adiga and Raymond Blanc, and many others.
For more information see the Oxford Literary Festival site.
Well a course in Milton Keynes. About telephones. For two whole days. Joy. Actually, its a bit dull but worthy workwise. Not as exciting as Windows courses, which is saying something
Have been reading Michael Moore’s Stupid White Men: …and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!, which is an awesome book. If you do nothing else this year, buy this book, and read the letter to George W Bush. Personally, I’d read the whole thing. But the least that everyone should do, especially at a time when Mr Bush is effectively leader of our country (Well, is Mr Blair going to do anything that Bush doesn’t want him to do?) it is something worth being aware of. Pure Genius.
