My real set of wheels are finally back on the road today, as my MG is now roadworthy again!

In amongst the delivery and pickup from the garage, my day has been punctuated with meetings and some interesting technology developments.

Before filling in some of the details, let’s focus on yesterday’s landmark photo, which was taken in Finsbury Circus, hence the clowning about clue!

The exact building and location was correctly spotted by Mr Wells.

Finsbury Circus is, as its name suggests, elliptical with a long axis lying east to west in the City of London. With an area of 2.2 hectares it is the largest public open space within the City’s boundaries. It has an immaculately maintained Lawn Bowls club in the centre, which has existed in the gardens since 1925.

Today’s landmark.

What is this place. One of my best mates Bazza should know, but you would not expect to see a black and white cat here?

My work day today was full of meetings. Literally back to back with staff and a number of suppliers.

Unfortunately the budget work I was pleased with yesterday still remained outstanding, but there was some positive progress made in relation to meetings on our desktop build, Websense (our Data Loss Prevention project) and some staffing matters.

The twitter press raised some interesting matters today. Specifically in relation to consumerisation.

Cisco plan to bin their Cius tablet range in favour of development of their software products. The reason being touted was Bring Your Own Devices! I guess Cisco were targeting the enterprise space, which is clearly not what BYOD is about!

In the mobile space, although Android, Apple and Windows devices are growing their market share, it is Android devices that are taking the majority of share from Symbian and Blackberry! Not really a surprise!

BT to deliver half a million WiFi hotspots at the Olympic venues. Great, but only ideal for BT Openzone customers, as everyone else will have to pay. Only a concern if you even have a Olympic ticket!

Speaking of which, there are now 59 days to the Olympics. Yesterdays event that includes chips, dinks and elbows was Tennis!

Today’s event includes a men’s world record that is nearly 100 metres and forms part of the Heptathlon and Decathlon, as well as being its own event! Easy eh?

Today’s highlight has to be the MG running again. Looking forward to a summer of driving to fishing (only joking)!
