My colleague John Dalziel found a great tool this morning. It is an automatic MP3 generator for any blog. so it converts text to speech. If you click on the button to the left of the heading – Odiogo, it will take you to a page with all the posts from this blog available as audio files. You can also subscribe to them using any of the following services.
At the time of writing the full text of each entry isn’t available as I had an incorrect button pressed within the blog. Within a short space of time though the full posts will be there. What a brilliant tool and it’s free!
Our team moved into new offices on the campus of Lancaster University at the beginning of this month. We are in a garret at the top of Bailrigg House which is the original old mansion house that stands at the northern end of the site.
Although it is a bit of a trek up the stairs the view is fantastic. This is the view from my office. Note the cricket scoreboard on the playing fields and in the distance the delightful view of Heysham Nuclear Power Station – mmm. In the distance you can see Morecambe Bay and you can tell whether the tide is in.
