I should, really, read these articles in full before posting a story and spreading the word. Time is of the essence mind, so here's an article from this year's Edinburgh Festival (9 August 2010). It's about events, festivals and technology - great stuff. (Click the guardian.co.uk link for the story.)
After a few hours to digest the story it's good to see the commenters tearing it to shreds. Er... is that my research focus out the window as well? What a let down! Ach well.
