At this time last year, I posted a video clip of audiences clapping out the conference season (HERE). This year, I've produced a compilation of members of a conference audience listening in rapt attention (?) with musical backing from Flipron's The End of Summer (from their album Biscuits for Cerberus). Much admired for Jesse Budd's lyrics and Joe Atkinson's brilliance on the keyboards, this particular sequence neatly catches a suitable mood for marking the end of the party conference season.
And thanks to Steve Jobs - without whom...When I bought my first computer in 1985, I came very close to buying an Apple Macintosh but chickened out and bought an Apricot (with two slots for 750K floppy disks).
While staying with John Heritage in Los Angeles about six years ago, he marched me into the student shop at UCLA and made me buy my first MacBook.
