    Shame the bulk of the crowd left after Mike Butcher's talk. The ERLANG stuff was interesting too!!!

    Great contrast of a useful but non-techy talk (Butcher about how to get noticed by the media) and a very techy one (Hunter from Smarkets about Erlang and concurrency) all handled with a cheeky sense of humour, a bottle of beer and a slice of pizza. Excellent.

    A great couple of talks, probably the best I've been to yet.
