"The Guardian's technology team is hosting its first Hack Day today. Staff and a few close friends of The Guardian will enter into a 24-hour codefest where anything is possible. The day starts with a round of lightning talks aimed to educate and inspire. Staff members such as Stephen Dunn, Simon Willison, Tom Marsh, Meg Pickard and Simon Rogers and a few visitors such as Martin Belam, Gavin Starks, and Scott Karp will each explain to the participants some of the interesting tools they might want to use".
"A blog is much more challenging because it is first-person. It is very fast, and in the world of blogging, most bloggers are offering opinions all the time. When newspapers add the format of blogging, I am not allowed the leeway of the traditional blogger". I like that 'bloggers' now have 'traditional' behaviour
Can someone do one of these for the UK so that I don't have to - I haven't got the time at the moment!
