There's a man on the other end who says we can claim £10,000 on something called PPI. Very strange!
What a great line. "But your art is your business - so take the time to learn about your field, how it works, the different avenues to promote and sell what you do." I'm going to start using that with creatives.

They are amazing, but I was disappointed there was no book of them at the exhibition.
Wow, what a great story. For my the Olympic Park was the real star of the show. Did you see bit.fall, an amazing water sculpture with random words? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1YYaJ5zqfI&feature=share
Gloves vs naked hands for me.

Ah, you are wrong about the British Library Donald. We do loads of tours, and I have seen and heard lots of Americans tourists on them. http://www.bl.uk/whatson/tours/index.html All the best Neil
Many apologies for that oversight Pjajvdm. I'm afraid I can't remember where I sourced the picture, so if you let me know I will happily acknowledge you.

And I though I could trust the British Library and it's conscientious curators! Now I know better ;-)
The British Library is unique in so many ways. I would be fascinated to see a list of items which only exist within our walls. The original hand illustrated Alice's Adventures Underground and Scott's last diary from the South pole spring to mind.
Love your positivity Sue. An inspiring blog to kick off the New Year. Neil
Good question. I don't think Google+ has gone 'mainstream' yet. Neil
Thanks. We are active on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn too. http://www.bl.uk/bipc/index.html Regards Neil
Thanks for spotting my error.
Thanks for your comment Edith. You are right to be proud of your daughter. I have just watched the CNN video interview with Sem and Natasha. http://edition.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/international/2011/05/02/mpa.la.diosa.jewellery.pkg.cnn.html
I tried it once and went straight back to my good old wet cappuccino.

Interesting stuff. I bought his books years ago, but have to admit I was somewhat disappointed, in terms of what I could apply to my job. This is where I get my current inspiration for graphic displays. http://www.coolinfographics.com/

What, no mention of Pamela Anderson boosting(or should that be inflating) box office takings by 800% due to her role as genie in Aladdin? http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/stage/article6878519.ece

According to Wikipedia the song is worth $5,000 per day, so watch your back. "In 1935 "Happy Birthday to You" was copyrighted as a work for hire by Preston Ware Orem for the Summy Company, the publisher of "Good Morning to All". A new company, Birch Tree Group Limited, was formed to protect and enforce the song's copyright. In 1998[9], the rights to "Happy Birthday to You" and its assets were sold to The Time-Warner Corporation. In March 2004, Warner Music Group was sold to a group of investors led by Edgar Bronfman Jr. The company continues to insist that one cannot sing the "Happy Birthday to You" lyrics for profit without paying extremely high royalties: in 2008, Warner collected about $5000 per day ($2 million per year) in royalties for the song.[2], pp. 4,68 This includes use in film, television, radio, anywhere open to the public, or even among a group where a substantial number of those in attendance are not family or friend to whoever is performing the song."

Steve A fascinating insight into the trials and tribulations of practical semantic applications. I was intrigued to see that your concordance database is key to matching text to business entities. The obvious next question is... how is the database updated - by people or technology? Neil
