We all know you couldn’t resist looking at pictures of Kanye rocking his “Lady Blouse” at last weekend’s Coachella Music Festival. Big name acts and their famous friends aside, it can be hard to see the appeal of spending a single weekend in the desert with thousands upon thousands of overserved well-off hipsters attempting to relive the 70’s (as if they were actually there).
A couple of Berlin-based architects evidently had the same sentiments when they created a design for Denmark’s Roskilde Music Festival, Copenhagen’s answer to Coachella.

Their award-winning design, cheekily titled “Why Don’t We Do It On The Stairs?”,  aims to salve music-lovers’ suffering by boxing up key services and  meeting spaces into the stadium seating risers themselves. Continued…Redesigning An Outdoor Music Festival, So It’s Not A Mess of Sunburns And Mud

Controversial new measures were introduced by Prime Minister David Cameron today in a bid to heal Britain’s “broken society”, which saw TFL opt for a one in, one out policy into Zone 1 to enforce the government’s new “radical social reform”.
“It’s dealing with the issues of family breakdown, welfare dependency,  failing schools, crime, and the problems that we see in too many of our  communities.”
For the majority of us it will mean increased travel times and document checks all in the interest of  “Cameronomics”.

It is anticipated this will have a negative impact upon journey times.

A couple of weeks ago I went to New York City as a guest of IBM’s mainframe group for an analyst summit. You may think mainframes are long gone by now but if you use a bank, or book a flight, or use the Post Office, you’re using a mainframe. These systems continue to be the basis for a huge percentage of transactions worldwide. System z isn’t just about legacy though- 20% of new sales are to run Linux workloads.
