Imperial Festival

imperial.jpgIt's twenty years since I left Imperial. Time to return.

Today the college is running a festival alongside alumni reunion events. The festival was far more interesting than the reunion (I didn't meet anyone I knew).

I came away impressed by the wide range of research going on at Imperial, and with a pang of nostalgia after sitting through an interesting lecture. The one disappointment was how software and maths were hardly represented at all in the programme. Software is at the heart of almost everything in our twenty-first century society, and Imperial is (or at least was) leading the world in the subject. To be under-represented – to be unrepresented – was quite simply wrong.

Looks like I was caught on camera by one of IC's official photographers.
