I'll be presenting a paper on crowd-sourcing data to improve musical tempo estimation at this year's ISMIR conference in Miami in October. This reports some research around a little interactive demo which we released a while ago on's labs website. If you haven't tried it yet then give it a go, it's quite fun... and we'll get a bit more data.

I'm also giving another talk on Hadoop at the Stack Overflow Dev Days in London in November.  The nice Stack Overflow folks have also given me some $100 discount codes to hand out, drop me a line if you'd like  one, they are also valid for the upcoming Dev Days in other cities. Update: Dev Days has been cancelled, but it turns out that I'll be speaking on Hadoop at UCL on 16 November.
