Edinburgh is a terrific place in August. I can't keep up with all the events going on. Work and real life is definitely getting in the way. The Festival. The Fringe Festival. The Jazz Festival. The Film Festival. The TV Festival. And the Book Festival, my favourite.
Earlier in the week I heard Tim Waterstone talk about his style of management ... he's made many millions for himself and others. Tonight it's Jeremy Leggett and Fred Pearce on "Oil and Water". Robert Fisk of The Independant newspaper couldn't make his committment to appear, so I'll maybe get the opportunity to see Al Gore give his slide show later in the month
Highly recommended: Edinburgh in August.
Update: Al Gore's talk sold out (probably before announcement). Flogging his movie at the Film Festival, Book Festival, and at another event, all on same day.
