This week I was in Shanghai for a trade show. In order to get an airfare my employer was willing to pay for, I was obliged to stay through the weekend after. Looking around for things to do, Time Out Shanghai pointed me at the Shanghai Pride website.
So lunch today was at the Pink BBQ, one of the opening events of the sixth year of Shanghai Pride:

I’ve managed to miss a couple of London Pride events, and this was a great reminder of the amazing buzz at events like these. I was pleased I had the chance to be part of this one!
Merry Christmas, from both of us here in London:
I was in Shanghai las week, for my first time in China. I was mesmerised by it at times, and this time lapse video has appeared in my newsfeed in a timely fashion.
Worth noting that I never saw it that clear – there was alway a (fairly unpleasant) smog in the air.
After leaving ARM just before the bank holiday, I started a new role at Canonical on 28th May:
One change is that these were delivered to my home – I don’t have a desk in an office. I’m looking forward to learning lots of new things, and meeting new people!
A short post to mark my leaving ARM, after just over three years, and to thank my ex colleagues for my leaving card and gift. I started in April 2010, after concluding Transmission Begins was not going to go where I wanted.
I’ve met lots of really interesting people, and learned a lot.
My last day was Friday, and I attach the suitably modified card I received:
Mali, 3D Giants!
Thank you all!
It’s funny to think this was entirely shrouded in scaffolding for the four years I was at college in the area!
An image from our last holiday. This is also a test…
I enjoyed this on TV last night: Timeshift – Series 12 –
7. The Joy of (Train) Sets“. For my own efforts, see my workbench.
Seasons Greetings. It seemed appropriate to use my Nexus 10 to take the picture, since this year has been one spent getting it, and products like it, ready to sell!
