Boffoonery! Out Now on Amazon and iTunesIf you didn't make it to Boffoonery! last year, or maybe you did and would like to relive the evening, then you'll be pleased to hear that it's available to download in glorious broadcast-quality stereophonic sound from Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby.com.
The download is 63 minutes of truly top buffoonery for boffins from the cream of British comedy, including Stephen Fry, Richard Herring, Robin Ince, Robert Llewellyn, Punt & Dennis and many more familiar faces and voices from TV and radio. A highlight for me was the quiz, featuring star turns from TV science legends Johnny Ball and Maggie Philbin.
Two giants of mathematics meet at last at Bletchley Park - Turing vs. Ball
It costs under a tenner (6.99 GBP from Amazon UK), and all profits go directly to Bletchley Park. So here's your chance to have a good laugh and help preserve a very important computing heritage site (maybe the most important) for future generations of computing enthusiasts and history buffs. And every download potentially unlocks 20 quid more in lottery funding. Bonus!
PS. If you're a blogger, tweeter, Facebooker or similar, please consider helping to spread the word. Bletchley Park needs your help.
