  1. Proper, big, exciting

    I was on ‘The One Show’ talking about Samuel Pepys and diaries. Being to TV is exciting.

  1. Requiem for a Dream

    Still one of my favourite websites promoting a film. Tries to convert the feeling of the film into something more about the web (of ten years ago) (in Flash). Also, it’s great to see that it’s still online.

    @CaptainTom3 @samuelpepys' tweets are all quotes from his genuine diary, often trimmed for length.

    @the_real_elaine Really? Why aren't I a good advert for keeping a diary? I'm curious :) #theoneshow

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Well, that was brief. Was much fun to do though :) Amazing how much work goes into such a short bit. Telly people are good. #theoneshow

    Really, I don't have "a passion for diaries". I was getting quite wet, it was raining. #theoneshow

    @benterrett Yes, it was Boris, on a Goodies-style tandem with David Beckham and Lady GaGa pedalling behind him!

    @benterrett You'll certainly be one person higher than whoever it was you were overtaking. Nearly there!

    @dotcode Maybe the meeting's in IPSWICH? Maybe they've all gone to IPSWICH? (Am I getting the hang of this football thing?)

    @morrick Only if you can access BBC1 from Spain (assuming that's where you are) somehow. Maybe my bit will *cough* find its way online…

    @macintosh I have no idea what you're talking about.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I will be saying spurious things about diaries on #TheOneShow, BBC 1, tonight at 7pm. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00xlw9s

    @benterrett I saw you on your bike this morning. You were overtaking someone. Well done.

    2 men with ties have come into this hip coffeeshop while I've been here. Both have just wanted "a coffee". It's never so simple these days.

    @dotcode Ha ha! If I supported a team it would be Ipswich. Ha ha you losers! Whoever your team is, losers! LOOOOZERRRZZZ!

    @Zoonie Yay, thanks for the Daily Show tips, will give it a whirl. Don't want to spring for a VPN just for this.
