As previously noted, I'm heading to London today and arriving tomorrow morning. Of course, I woke up to news of the second round of bombings--much less destructive than last time but still jarring. I'll say off the subway.

I'm looking forward to visiting the BBC, the Geek Dinner on Friday (a whole bar?!), and OpenTech on Saturday. See you there. I'll be the one giving out Flickr stickers. Get 'em while they last!

Maybe I'll get a chance to try out my new iPass account in the airport.

Just remember not to call the Tube "the subway" and you'll be fine :)

Hey just wanted to say hello. You don't see too many Zawodny's out there. Do you have any relatives living in the Boston area?

Glad to see you're still coming despite the explosions. Will hopefully see you there, if public transport doesn't let me down.

And yeah, we call it 'the tube', not 'the subway'. Subway is a chain of sandwich shops.

"Subways" in London are also pedestrian underpasses, often near Tube stations.

Hi Jeremy, dont avoid the Tube just because of a few bombs, stats show that the chances of you getting blown up are minimal, also the kind of publicity ure giving is exactly what terrorists want. Show them that even though they have killed few people, your not afraid!

It's not just the blowing up you should be worried about. If a bomb goes off, they'll shut down parts of the tube and it'll take ages to get anywhere.
