A bit of a wrap-up week -- and I'm not talking about clothing: phew, it's a scorcher. Chris Lowis put the finishing touches to three of the four prototypes for the Web Audio API project. Olivier spent the week catching up with the W3C Audio Working Group work and helped them process the recent onslaught of issues. Meanwhile Andrew Nicolaou was finishing the ABC-IP tagging experiment.

Davros considers the subtlety and mystery of research and development on his tea break

This week saw the team concluding FI Content work in readiness for the imminent user study / participation experiment. Dan Nuttall put the finishing touches to the Chrome extension and supporting Web pages which I had designed. Joanne Moore -- refreshed from her holiday -- worked on finalising the materials for the FI Content user study. She is now preparing to show the work to other teams around the BBC. Meanwhile Chris Needham was working on a project description document for the connected TV authentication work for the FI Content project. The document contains some example user scenarios and interactions. Chris also perused user testing reports from work the BBC ID team previously did in this area.

In other news, Libby sounds like she enjoyed attending a lecture by Dr. Robert Mullins, co-founder of the Raspberry Pi project, and interesting questions were raised around getting children interested in coding. Meanwhile, Chris Newell spent the week climbing crumbling Medieval monuments on Italian mountains to test his vertiginous response to unstable high altitude structures. "What has that got to do with the recommendations engine?", I hear you say. Ah, yee of little faith, is the path of discovery and innovation not subtle and mysterious? Answers on a postcard to Swap Shop, BBC Television Centre, Wood Lane, W12 8QT (closing date for entries January 9th, 1982).
