Wolfram Programming Cloud Beta goes live 

Wolfram Alpha is incredibly useful source of information, when it was announced they would produce a flexible programming cloud it was of great interest to me. With the release I jumped on to see what it was like.

The functionality is quite powerful exploiting rich social media structures, looks really impressive and something I would be interested in exploiting, but as soon as I tried to do something simple I got this:

Intro to Climbing @CraggyIsland 

For the last couple of weeks I have been taking an intro to climbing at Craggy Island in Guildford. I have previously been bouldering at Surrey Sports Park and a Church in Bristol, but have never been bothered to commit to the hassle of ropes. Despite my initial reservations I loved it, I would highly recommend and although the skills you learn on an intro course aren’t ground breaking the climbing anecdotes and titbits are great to listen to.

I have already planned my first post-course climbing trip at Craggy Island!
