  1. Geolocation & Beer: Part 1 – Finding the user

    Posted on May 5th, 2010 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Blog Posts.

    I recently attended BarCamb3, a BarCamp held at the lovely Red Gate Software offices in Cambridge. My main contribution to the event was talking about a silly little weekend learning project I’ve been working on – Beer Near Me. I’ve split the presentation I gave up into three separate blog posts, which I’ll be putting […]

  2. Why did I go to Social Media Camp?

    Posted on May 1st, 2009 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Blog Posts.

    It’s been almost a week now, so I thought I’d better write down my thoughts about Social Media Camp London ’09 now before they all vanish from my head. I didn’t go to last year’s Social Media Camp. I only heard about it a couple of days before it was due to happen, and frankly […]

  3. How to make Awesome Broken Biscuit Cake

    Posted on April 26th, 2009 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Blog Posts.

    I know, this isn’t code and it isn’t anything I’ve done on the train, but it is something I’ve made several times over the last few weeks now. The last time I made it was for yesterday’s Social Media Camp in London, organised wonderfully by Vero. But I’m not going to talk about Social Media […]

  4. Had a ticket but didn’t come to BarCamp London 5? For shame…

    This weekend was BarCamp London 5 (I know, this is the third post on the subject, but keep with me on this) at Ebay’s office in Richmond. It was a great weekend, with some very high quality talks. In fact, I don’t think I went to a single session that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. As […]

  5. Ten Word Moo Card

    Posted on October 1st, 2008 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Blog Posts.

    One of the sessions I attended at BarCamp London 5 this weekend was Stefan Magdalinski’s talk about the Moo API. Ever since I made my first The Ten Word Review Moo Cards by hand I’ve been wanting to automate the process, but lack of time and incentive has always let me down. So, what changed? […]

  6. WikiSlurp: Slurping Data from Wikipedia for Fun and Profit

    Posted on September 28th, 2008 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Blog Posts.

    This last weekend I attended BarCamp London 5, where I talked about WikiSlurp, my technique for accessing the wealth of data held within Wikipedia. I currently use WikiSlurp on both Is Neil Annoyed By and The Ten Word Review as a way to pull in additional information about the things described on individual pages. These […]
