Having recently been to the United States and fallen in love with much of what I saw, I’m itching to go back. Thankfully, I don’t have to wait very long, as the second EECI conference is just a couple of months away. For those of you that live in isolation and may have missed the 4,678 reasons to attend, here’s a mini-overview.
Nice people sometimes ask where the videos of my talks are. Well, most of my presentations have not been recorded, were screwed up during recording, are being sat on by the organisers, or were recorded in the dark without a mic.

Grrr. Nearly three weeks later (it not being a priority), there be air in the lungs once more.
A few days ago we launched the North Pole Speed Record site for our intrepid client Ben Saunders. Ben is a record-breaking long-distance skier, with three North Pole expeditions under his belt.
