UK: Campus Open Day for Startups!

Sun Startup Essentials  - Campus Open Day

We invite you to join us at our UK headquarters on the 3rd of September as we open our doors for an insight into Sun's operations, the staff, as well as see the environment including our exciting technologies and eco-datacentre (with some refreshments & networking time thrown in of course ;-) )

Set in the Surrey/Hampshire border, a short distance from London and off the M3 motorway, the award winning campus consists of three buildings, "SPARC house", "Solaris House", & "Java House", interconnected by glass passages.  Many of the European-level activities are conducted on site, and it is home to many, if not all the organizations that make up Sun, including the services, sales, and software teams.  Onsite facilities include a restaurant, gym, a shop, massage/therapy rooms, hairdressers, coffee shops, and much, much more!

The agenda kicks off at 12.30pm:

- Arrive for a Welcome Briefing
- Lunch (courtesy of Sun Startup Essentials)
- Tour of the campus
- Tour of the datacentre (restricted numbers)
- Drinks reception

We hope you can join us!

Amazing site for Twitter data manipulation and representation

So I stumbled across this site by pure accident thanks to a friend of mine @paulfabretti and his blog Blending the mix, which has kept me from looking at work for the last 30 minutes. Im from a more engineering background and love data, how it can be represented chopped and shaped so we can see the facts.

Twitter as a microblogging tool has so much data flowing through it, that it is difficult to view it in any sense as their is a lot of noise, you have to parse a lot of it to get anywhere but now we have all these lovely tools that people are writing to create word clouds and images of the trending subjects and focus and I want to share a site that I love with you.

Neoformix

This is all about discovering patterns in data and Jeff has written some great tools to do this, analyse the data sets and then represent them in beautiful ways, so go check it out and look at the data out there, its amazing.
