Gearing up for Mashed

So Over the Air was cool, but I wasn't around for all of it. No this year's big hackety fest for me is going to be Mashed- except I can't get the HTML badges to work, hmm.

Anyway, there will be a few very very cool bits that I already know are happening, but I'm not sure what's public yet, not being at the absolute nexus of Mashed planning. However, Channel 4 have been involved already, so hopefully they'll have some cool stuff to play with. The Kingswood guys have gone full throttle on building a complete TV station in a box- so we can hack around with live tv feeds. And I think I'm going to bring some rockets, and little camera, and let's see if we cant do live interactive rocket cam TV. Not sure about 3d though.

UPDATE on the Badges- OK I think I see the problem- somehow a rogue " character is borking the HTML on the badges on Matt's site. He knows and will fix soon I expect.

UPDATE II- Fixed by the Exfellent london biker!
