|My little photographic friend|
When I got home I emptied by bag and pockets and looked around to check that the camera was not in these places. Having established that it wasn't I emailed (perhaps optimistically) the CityLit asking them if the camera had been handed in.
I really like the camera an IXUS 75 which I've had for over 6 years and although I could take pictures with my phone (Nokia Lumia 710) or my Playbook it would not I fear be the same type of photo - I had started looking at other models and the special offer Canon IXUS 132 (with WiFi inbulit) was looking attractive at Currys.
Today I was delighted to hear from them that it had and that I could retrieve it, the fact that I had somehow let it fall from my bag but that it was handed in is really good news - thanks to whoever handed it in and CityLit for responding.
This 'event' feels like it has given me an insight into my 'human behaviour' it being interesting and another example of another way that the Turing test would be unmet in a similar way.
Henri Bergson, Alain de Botton and a dictionaryOf late I've been raving about Michael Foley and when I was ordering a dictionary of Philosophy I felt compelled to order at the same time from the excellent series of slim volumes from The School of Life a book by Foley on Henri Bergson.
|More from Foley|
I will read more Foley's interpretation of Bergon's philosophy with interest.
Connecting the Foley book I've got Alain's book on the News - Alain is the founder of The School of Life.
Yet again Amazon have delivered ahead of schedule - it's great to have your expectations exceeded by a massive company -there are many others I could list here who are far more likely to fall short and to be unaware of their failings.
