    Last Friday I received a phone call informing me that I had to get myself to the Hack To The Future event being held at Our Ladies Catholic High School in Preston as a matter of urgency because the BBC are to be there and would be unwrapping, for the first time, the BBC Micro 2.

    I have just been sent a PR statement about the numbers from this years BETT.
    BETT had 30,372* visitors over the 4 days which made it the highest attended BETT so far. This was an increase of 3.84% from last year.
    Next years BETT is at the ExCel exhibition centre which I am told provides extra space and also is now at the end of January (30th - 2nd Feb) which hopefully will mean more can attend rather than having it in the first week of term for many. They also say current bookings for next years show are at 104% percent of Olympia's capacity already.
    As usual EduGeek will be attending so make sure you come along to the new stand. ...

    Dennis Ritchie, the creator of the C programming language and co-founder of the Unix operating system, has died at the age of 70.

    Mr Ritchie was arguably one of the most influential figures in the early days of computing and laid the foundations for many of today's technologies before they were even conceived. If you use a computer today, chances are you are using something built on his ideas from decades ago.
