  • David Byrne Journal: 04.03.09: Liverpool — Tips from a Fan – Oh look – now he's talking about Liverpool. Did he not leave the tour bus in Birmingham? Maybe, like this post describes, I should have written him a fan letter pointing out the stuff in Brum worth taking a peek at.
  • David Byrne Journal: 04.01.09: Newcastle upon Tyne/Gateshead – I was so hoping David Byrne would write something about Birmingham in his tour journal. He didn't. Instead he's done an epic post about the wonders of Newcastle/Gateshead: "After our show at the Sage, a symphony hall encased in glass caterpillar skin, a local friend of Mark’s mentions that there is a bike path that leads to the sea, and there’s even a bike tunnel under the river somewhere downstream. The next morning is gorgeous and sunny, and Natalie, Jenni and I head out, cross the Millenium ped bridge and head west towards the North Sea [….] I should be working for the local tourist board"
  • Digital Birmingham – Blog – Birmingham Open City – Announcement of the bid we won at Digital Birmingham as part of the Timely Information for Citizens pilot funding.
