    @gwire Yes, noticed that - I’d never seen a map come up that was (mostly) white until today! Once all the ice melts, problem solved!

    @benbrown A lot of stats, data pulled from DB, some forms.

    @benbrown I’m wary this job has to be done pretty quickly and the graphic design isn’t *that* important. So don’t want to reinvent too much.

    @jaggeree Good to know, thanks!

    @jaggeree Thanks. I think it’ll be necessary to make this one feel quite like a “proper” app, so jQueryMobile seemed to fit the bill.

    The Olympics will be good for London businesses! MT @caitlinmoran: Anyone who's always fancied visiting London: it's deserted at the moment.

    @paulpod You should design it along the lines of the Hayward’s current exhibition…

    I counted one union jack swim cap, one union jack pair of goggles. Nutters.

    Swimming pool way too busy this morning. Had to give up. Bloody Olympics; encouraging sport, inspiring generations.
