    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

    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...

    @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.
    Jonathan Kingston
    @jonathanKingston
    Sounds good to me
    we don't really have a format to follow really
    Wow not seen a package.json like that in ages
    Ah fair enough most are transforms

    @ajbkr
    Defo feels like we've over-engineered some of this app. But don't wanna say too much before I give my talk. :-)
    Jonathan Kingston
    @jonathanKingston
    like without react-transform- babel- eslint- webpack- you have a fairly light package.json
    ugh I put *'s in that but it md'd it haha

    @jonathanKingston
    @ajbkr you happy with your mug and description to go on the site?
    Andrew J. Baker
    @ajbkr
    Sure.
    Andrew J. Baker
    @ajbkr
    @jonathanKingston Can you please also include my colleague's name, Kristian Roebuck, who'll be co-presenting the lessons learned with me.

    More on ScotlandJS...
    I have now booked my accommodation.
    Pollock House.
    It's 1 mile or 20 min walk from the venue.
    And a snip at £41 per night.
    With buffet brekkie and free WiFi.
    Admittedly it's one of the halls of residence.
