    I did check Travelodge, etc. and it was about £100 per room, per night. I thought that was a bit pricey.
    Maybe I'll end up taking a look on Airbnb too.

    What's wrong with Sky?
    Well... in ScotlandJS's case: Sky Betting & Gaming. I don't believe they're a Sky company any more.
    I went to one of their (Sky B&G) tech meetups in Sheffield and they said they had been sold to an Italian company a few years ago (I think).

    @iancrowther how come you refused
    Sky controls most of the worlds media, always boycotted anything Murdoch related even prior to the phone hack bullshit
    And yeah adding in gambling to the mix makes it actually really bad
    Betting on the internet should be banned like they do in America I think
    I worked at a payment company who made a whole heap of revenue from online games (not even gambling) and it felt like stealing money from kids
    I cited the reason in my resignation

    @ajbkr
    Ah, well gambling doesn't sit well with my personal values so I can understand where you're coming from there. For me it's a bit more "shades of grey" though.

    Yeah I saw the money being made from the likes of Farm ville and similar. Just feels like we have CoC's to protect attendees and speakers but we slap Evil Corp on the poster and don't notice the harm it's doing.
    I think it's my hard line to be fair. I'm sad like that haha

    Great advert for Blenheim Chalcot and their companies but the reality is only VC funded companies could afford the £260+ a desk rental there

    When all browser default tracking protection on, will people still try using Google Analytics?
    ajbkr @ajbkr has begun jotting down some things to cover in his talk...
    Andrew J. Baker
    @ajbkr
    This is gonna be a tough one to condense.
    Jonathan Kingston
    @jonathanKingston
    heh well so far we don't have another talk for that day either
    worst case scenario you will have to suffer me ramble on about something
    Andrew J. Baker
    @ajbkr
    Heh. :-)
    I'm going through our package.json; tons of stuff in there. It's proving quite useful for jogging my memory.
    I reckon it'll be the sort of talk where there's the occasional code snippet, but most of it will be based around lessons learned, etc.

    @jonathanKingston
    Sounds good to me
