It’s getting harder and harder to pay for your own coffee at Tuttle. Since we moved over there, our new hosts, LEON, in Spitalfields have been very generously giving away free first coffees until 11am for lovely Tuttle folk – and now Canon Cameras are covering the costs for the whole session (within reason!)
Sam at Canon Camera Buzz writes: “At Friday’s event Canon will be showcasing cameras from compacts to high-end Digital SLRs. If you have any questions, whether on the products being demonstrated or any Canon camera, the Canon UK team will be there and more than happy to help.”
As usual, there’ll be room for you to carry on tuttling without having anything to do with the sponsor if you really don’t want to, but I think people who come to tuttle, but who aren’t interested in shiny new camera kit are few and far between.

[UPDATE: Unsurprisingly, this offer was almost instantly oversubscribed. Sorry to anyone who's only just heard. Yay! for those who got their places]
So this is what I squealed with excitement about yesterday on twitter (not what I swore about today – that’s something else that I’ll write about soon)
I’m going to assume that most people who’ve been to Tuttle or read this blog have heard of the TED conference. If not, I don’t mean to shame you, but really! Go here and check it out, then come back.
So normally you’d expect to have to go to California *and* pay a large amount of money to be part of this experience. OK so the one coming up is in Oxford, so you’d still have to go all the way to *Oxford* (!) but perhaps more challengingly, pay a large amount of money to be part of this experience.
Yesterday, I got a call from Alex at Wieden & Kennedy to say that they were helping Nokia put together an event in a couple of weeks, live-streaming from the TED conference in Oxford at the w+k offices in E1 for FREE and did I know any people in the kind of creative & digital space who might be interested in going along.
That’s when I squealed.
So here is the sign up page for us on Wednesday 22nd – we’ve divided the day up into four slots to maximise the number of people who can take part. You might like to take a look at the schedule to see which slot you’d like most to book. Please don’t be greedy, I know tuttlers aren’t greedy.
There are also sessions on Tuesday afternoon, which is reserved for “Women in Tech” (yes *Women* only – no “Laydees”) and Thursday which is reserved for “Youth” ie people aged 16-25 Please don’t book slots on more than one day. Again, that will help make sure that as many people can come as possible.

Eeep!!!! For the Friday Tuttle on 19th December, our friends at the ICA are giving us a special gift of a screening of our favourite movie: Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil”!
It will start promptly at 10.15 so we should be done by 1pm in time for some lunch (don’t worry, we’ll be going for the original cut, not the “happy ending” US version…). I
‘ll have put up a sign-up list on the wiki to keep an eye on how many are planning to come. I’d be surprised if we reach the capacity of the cinema (185) but I’ve given up trying to predict these things.
If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a treat.
