Welcome to Ikea-land: Furniture giant begins urban planning project - The Globe and Mail

Fri, 04/13/2012 - 16:58 -- rprice

Amid this 11-hectare expanse of ancient rusting machinery, waste piles and grinding construction equipment is a converted brick sugar warehouse where a team of Swedes and Brits are poring over blueprints and renderings. LandProp Services bought the land in 2009. Their vision is to turn this grey netherworld, once planning approval is done, into a tightly packed neighbourhood they’ll call Strand East.

Social Media Café London

Tue, 02/19/2008 - 07:12 -- rprice

My last Friday in London was the cause for Likemind London and (directly across the street, 5 minutes after) Social Media Café. I'm pretty sure the idea is to eventually own a physical piece of "IRL" space - this goes beyond coworking - London has several coworking spaces already. We're talking a place for social media nerds or pros, however they choose to label themselves, to get together and talk. Now taking place every Friday Morning near London's glitzy West End, behind the theatre where you can see "Spamalot".

OLPC and other Sub-Notebooks as a Weapon for African Cyber-Crime? Nope.

Fri, 02/08/2008 - 01:24 -- rprice

OLPC As I was sitting in a café here in London yesterday, I picked up the Guardian's Thursday Technology Section and saw this rather large story a few pages in - there is a picture of some cute African kids with XO laptops, but the headline read Crime fears as cheap PCs head for Africa

Interesting Brits and Aussies (and Floridians, Michiganders)

I've certainly noticed the work of Russell Davies before, but somehow I thought he just blogged about food, because he's written a book about 50 great cafés around the UK called Egg, Bacon, Chips & Beans with an accompanying café blog, as well as one called a good place for a cup of tea and a think.

Photos from London

It was awesome. I'm going back at least twice next year. I have lots to catch up on, but it doesn't feel like a chore. I'm getting some nice solidification of some of my crazy ideas, and some perspective on some of my old ones. 2008 will be the best year ever, and I have Kait and London to thank for it in part.

Coworking London, any takers?

If anyone has Google Alerts set for CoworkingLondon, they'll come across this blog post and reply soon.

I am currently staying in Northern London, and I'm now an expert at the tubes and trains here, so I can get to anyplace I like. I have a day off tomorrow until around 1600 (that's 4PM for you non-Europeans), and I'd like to co-work somewhere in town.

Off to London until 4/30

Tue, 04/17/2007 - 20:39 -- rprice

By the time most of you read this, I will likely be on my way to the airport. I'm flying out on NorthWest (for the frequent flyer miles). Never flown with them internationally, we'll see. I am pulling out my passport at this very moment...right.

If you have friends in London, send them here to the blog and the comments on this post or the contact form, or MySpace.

If you're on Flickr, add me, I hope to be posting photos all along the way.
