I haven't taken very many pics yet and have posted even fewer (sleep deprivation). But so far I'm impressed with this city.

London feels modern and very old-world at the same time. And the folks at the BBC I've met so far are very clued in and in many ways far ahead of the broadcast establishments in the US--including NPR.

More later. It's just after midnight here and I've only slept about 2 hours in the last day. Big day tomorrow.

Fox News is clued in? Glued in is more likely.

The BBC is way liberal, but probably not as much as NPR (which is socialist).

Sweet! Pretty nice. Picked an interesting time to visit politically. Would be nice to hear your thoughts on that subject.

I worked for the Beeb for about a year as a Perl dev. Nice place - good people. I'm curious why you're visiting them. While I was there the app I put together for them ran on Oracle which was a dog (Oracle, not my app :). There was a lot of talk about migrating to MySQL or PostgreSQL.

I'm guessing they've decided to migrate to MySQL?


ps: Say hi to Damian in Ops - he was the Oracle nazi while I was there.

BBC is definitely one of my favourite press agencies.
