Just hope the weather is better than it is now – I still remember the Buxton Rock festival in 1973!
I was at University of Sheffield last night for the BIN@Sheffield2011 conference dinner. A brilliant evening at Firth Hall with some old friends and colleagues from Digital South Yorkshire and the IET. Excellent local food with some fabulous music provided by Ray Gelato. If you get chance to see Ray and his band perform then make certain to take along the dancing shoes!
Congratulations to Mark Sanderson and colleagues for the organisation.
