A couple of things worth mentioning.
On Thursday I went along to a Q&A session with Computer Weekly's Tony Collins on investigative journalism. I was going to blog about it, but my colleague Adam Tinworth pipped me to the post. And if you look at the photo accompanying Adam's post, you can see me - just about - on the very far left. I know it doesn't look like it from the photo, but there were quite a lot of people at the Q&A.
Also during the week, Sarah drew my attention to a fun little BBC News Magazine quiz on council jargon. She managed 2/7; I managed 4/7.
Funnily enough, these two tie together nicely as Tony Collins has just written a piece for ComputerWeekly.com on the IT industry's reaction to the Local Government Association's 'jargon ban'.
