Life's good indeed

Over at lgloop they're running a competition to win pretty tasty LG goodies. I've entered a couple of shots and it would be great if you could pop along and vote for my images. Much good karma will be bestowed upon those of you good enough to put a vote my way :-)

I've been spending a lot of time looking into various barcode issues recently and on an unrelated search I stumbled across Barcode Plantage. It creates a funky looking 'plant' grown from whatever barcode you give it. Its built on an opensource graphics engine which might be the real find here though...

I've finally managed to get some of my pictures sorted and uploaded. You can take a look at the first couple of galleries by looking at the new photo section.

Some of you may have seen the official photos from our wedding but if you haven't, you'll be glad to know that Tom, the photographer we hired, thinks they're good enough to go into his portfolio. His work speaks for itself so its not bad that he thinks his work at our wedding was tip-top...we obviously love the shots too!

You can check the shots on the wedding section of his site numbers 1, 25 and 40.

If (like me) you're a fan of the original Bond books and all that has happened since he took to the silver screen, you'll enjoy the interactive features running over at The Times.
I guarantee you'll learn something new (did you know Churchill wrote Fleming's father's obituary?).

I've just updated the blog to a new platform and with all its iPhone compatible loveliness its looking promising.

A new pandemic?

I received this from the thought provoking people at TED. Some of the images are pretty disturbing but the message is important so I thought I'd share it with you.

Hello Benjamin

I have no idea whether we'll know you as Ben, Benny, or Benjamin but whatever it is I'm sure we're going to have lots of fun together! Oh, yes and congratulations to Berns (9lb 7oz!) and Peter!

Nick Veasey has created some stunning images of the world around us in x-ray.
The amazing images take in an aircraft hangar (complete with airliner) and a bus with all the passengers 'catching some rays'. Apparently, he got hold of a $5m machine usually used on the US-Mexican border to find illegal immigrants and contraband.

Check it out over at Time.
