Bookbinding Club – 6pm, 29 Sept

by Suw on September 17, 2010

Inspired by the wonderousness of The Stationery Club, Ben O’Steen and I have decided to run our own Bookbinding Club. We’re going to get together at 6pm on Wednesday 29 September at The Lamb on Lambs Conduit Street for our inaugural meeting.

Anyone who is interested in bookbinding, whether or not they practice, is welcome. If you’re curious about how books are made, just beginning to make your own (that’ll be me then!) or an expert, we would be delighted to see you.

Each get together will be themed, so for this first one, please do bring along any projects you have that you’re in the middle of, stuck on, or have finished for us to discuss. And if you’re a beginner, we’ll talk about how to make a simple book so you can go home and get started!

You’ll easily be able to spot us – we’ll be the people sat with the piles of books and stationery out on the table! If you’re coming, please feel free to leave a comment here so that we can get an idea of numbers.

Google Scribe: Heaven help us

by Suw on September 8, 2010

I thought I’d have a little play with Google Scribe, so I started off with “I was walking down the” and then accepted every suggestion Scribe had to offer. This is what I got:

I was walking down the street from them and they are nothing but another form of therapy for these patients is not known whether these are the only ones who can not afford to pay for their own users and groups to their Friends / Favorites list yet, so I’ma keep popping up in their own right and do not want to be related to their particular field or industry in which they are attached to their respective owners…

Scribe doesn’t understand context beyond a few words and has no facility for punctuation. They’ve clearly trained it on CiF commenters.
