    @engineeringdept Hide under the table!

    @esinclai Really worth trying to find a way to see it sometime.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @privateroach Just not enough characters for moments like that.

    Orbital / Stephen Hawking / Large Hadron Collider / 'Spasticus Autisticus' / protestors / Alison Lapper Pregnant. For those not watching.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Brilliant.

    @spaceboy They'll probably cut the science and just show the humans flying AS GOD INTENDED.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @spaceboy I do keep thinking of (obviously) 'Prospero's Books'.

    @solle @bashford Someone suggested it's the tilt of the camera and should only have been visible to the operator. Dunno.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @stml They were great weren't they.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @christhebarker I guess it was just coincidence it was right where the missing green agito should have been. OR WAS IT?!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    It'd be great if Will & Kate caught sight of themselves on the big screen and started manically smiling and waving at it.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @gwire Who stole the Green Agito? Will you be the first to find it? It's hidden somewhere on our partner websites, sign up here, T&Cs apply!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Jacques Rogge wasn't using his first language but this chap's much better. For a start he's demonstrably alive.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Yes, what was that? RT @christhebarker: Two questions: where is the green agitos and why are we viewing at 2 degrees?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    What's that 2° mean?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Once all athletes are seated they will perform a mass Work Capability Assessment on David Cameron.

    Frippertronics FTW.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @engineeringdept Get a few spinning mobile disco lights while you're there?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Flagging. So to speak.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @AnnieFeighery I dunno, I think it's just up to people watching things late to be careful!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @AnnieFeighery Ooh, not long to go is it! SNF is being shown live again on terrestrial TV here, so I'll be catching up again later!

    Adverts interrupting the coverage remind me what it must be like to live in a normal country.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    "The Republic of China enter to a huge cheer… and now some adverts."

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Twitter search for "adverts" full of people appreciating the chance to make informed decisions about purchases of future goods and services.

    Flagpoles with Dyson airblades built in to make flags always flutter as required.

    Queen Elizabeth, otherwise known as Little Mrs Sunshine.

    'Common People' playing behind Boris Johnson interview. I'm getting excited!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    At last it's their time to shine! It's finally time for the advertisers to show off their sporty TV ads!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    OTOH, I’m amazed how much new stuff I’m still learning every week. But, on the third hand, I always feel further and further behind.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Sometimes progress is a pain in the arse. (Had to get to grips with a new framework and new templating language to get one page online.)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomcoates I’m going to sound all old-fashioned but… I can’t seem to find an RSS feed of your Medium posts. This makes me sad.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I’m speaking at The Design of Understanding 2013. It’s always great. You should come: thedesignofunderstanding.com
