Thanks for attending my talk if you were able to make it over to Abington. I had to leave after my presentation so I didn't get a chance to see any of the other presentations, but the consensus appears to be that it was another great event. The slides are posted below for anyone that wants to reference them.
I was asked to take a few photos for this event by fellow pythonista Tom Panzarella.
I think they turned out OK for the most part - although the EF 70-200 L saved my arse in the end. It was difficult shooting with the lighting setup at the venue, but I'll be back there to get some more practice.
All of the photos are over on Flickr and they were even linked to by Technically Philly!
This is mainly for me own reference, but it is probably something that other people will find useful. If you attempt to use the rlcompleter module on the Mac you'll find that tab completion does not work correctly. Apparently this is because Apple ship a neutered version of readline.
To get completion working you have to use a different argument to readline.parse_and_bind(). The base example uses:
Change that line to:
readline.parse_and_bind ("bind ^I rl_complete")
I've spent a fairly big chunk of my professional career building public websites for a number of clients. One of the things that comes up again and again is search engine optimisation.
Surprisingly there is very little coverage of this is in business and marketing journals. Patrick Reid wanted to start raise awareness, and needed my technical help in preparing a paper. We finished it up earlier this year and it was published in the Journal of Strategic Management Education.
Corporate Communications in the FTSE 100: Evidence using Search Engines

Search engines have become an essential tool for information seekers on the world wide web. This makes it critical that company websites are optimised to achieve the highest possible ranking across the major search engines, in particular Google, ensuring maximum exposure and subsequent awareness. This paper identifies key factors in search engine optimisation and then analyses a sample of the largest 10 firms listed on the London Stock Exchange.
The findings reveal a lack of adoption of best practices which will impact on their search rankings. The paper also discusses tradeoffs inherent in search engine optimisation and draws out key implications for managers and academics.
The full paper is available from the Senate Hall site.
