I am not sure if I have mentioned this before, but I have been elected into the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists. One of these days, I will write more about it.. But got to attend a lovely dinner and the dinner was held in the Ironmonger's Hall. Very formal stuff, was wearing my bib and tucker and all. Had to bow and scrape and tug the forelock and all that.
But it was amazing, to see all these senior technologists, busy with their philanthropic activities, assisting in charity and education. Very humbling indeed, to be part of an association which comprises of professionals going back hundreds of years.... But the hall was amazing. I saw a window with the crest of the first Master of the company, going back at least 800 years. Now that's history for you. And the port was brilliant.
I sneaked in some photo's when the dinner was finished.
