Great, as we have seen with some interesting US based mapping technologies recently opening up state-collected geographical data is in everyones interest. After all we paid for it to be done in the first place and so it should be available to all. Sign this petition: Petition – Public Geo Data:

Well the [sun]() has finally decided to make an showing in London to warm up the capital, and very nice it was too. Spent a nice day walking down The Thames and along Southbank taking in the views, the beach or what you can call a beach though I am sure the reclaim the beach parties are in aid of something and generally enjoying the weather before it takes a turn back to the norm.

Just I made the plunge and finally upgraded some elements of the home cinema by the inclusion of firstly a Pioneer 575A DVD player which also plays back DVD-A, SACD, DVD-R/RW, CDR, Divx, jpg and mp3 files! It has progressive scan on component video outs and it plays very nicely to.Next up was the screen so I choose after many hours reading the forums over at AVForums a Panasonic PWD6. I am still waiting for the stand to arrive but so far I am very impressed with the performance of the screen particularly when driven from the component outputs of the 575A with progressive scan enabled.

Well yesterday was my Birthday and amoung other things we went to see shhh… at the V&A yesterday, and it was really quite good. Its an exploritive of music composed by various musicians with varying degrees of success. Of the highlights was Roots Manuva and a long time favourite of mine, Cornelius. Just walking around looking at the exhibits with music gave quite a different feel to the whole museum and I really recommend that even if you didn’t get to see this, take an iPod around and try and make your own soundtrack – the results are outstanding and sometimes felt like I was involved within a movie
