Went to see the Michael McGoldrick band at the Sage, Gateshead last night. Very good players - he is a remarkable technician, but.....I was also disappointed. I wanted more spntaneity and the back line was just stodgy - roots and ffths bass, basic rock drumming. It needed subtlety. I enjoyed it all the same.

Just trying Alpha myself. I can't think of anything useful it can do for me at the moment given the kinds of vaguely generic results it gives me. But it also just gets things wrong that you would expect it to get right : "life expectancy england" gives results for the whole UK, "life expectancy scotland" says it doesn't understand the question. Some of the data is just bizarre : Newcastle upon tyne (otherwise you get Australia) : elevation 213ft, Gateshead : elevation 33ft. Makes no sense at all. Needs work I would say. And I agree with the new kind of plagiarism sentiment in the Register article.
