I survived the Zombie Apocalypse

Last night we ran for our lives from zombies, being chased around parks, shopping centres and churches. The interactive game, 2.8 Hours Later had us hunting all around the city, with some fantastic set pieces like a zombie butcher, zombie scanning centre, zombie hen party and an underground resistance movement. It was all part of igfest 2011 in Bristol.

Nuclear power

This problem in Japan has if anything made me more keen on nuclear power. Why? Well, partly because it has prompted me to take a look at the latest reactor designs. Travelling Wave Reactors caught my interest after Bill Gates’s TED talk, however there are problems – they will only be ready in around 20 years, plus they don’t breed any fuel for the future. There’s another design, Integral Fast Reactors which also look interesting, and are here today.
