Wind Passes Through the Brass Instrument

Thu Feb 16 17:53:45 2017

While we don’t generally tout, too much,* of our own trumpet it is always nice when a Shadowcatter gets their name into a publication or site outside of our own domains.

Mark Keating, MD and avid site contributor, has made a little splash in February as he appears in local news sites, a local initiative blog and on a podcast.

Mark is the chair of the newly formed Digital Lancaster which we made some note of previously. Last week he was the host and a speaker at the Digital Lancaster launch event and made it onto sites because of this. Mark was featured in the Digital Lancashire blog and the In The Bay news site.

Mark is also a member of The Perl Foundation and Enlightened Perl marketing efforts and was at FOSDEM for the yearly conference. As is now a tradition he was on the table with Wendy** and in a repeat of last year was interviewed by Hacker Public Radio for their podcast.

As always you can contribute to the conversation below and follow Mark on Twitter by tweeting at @shadowcat_mdk


  • Though, if we are honest, the whole point of a news page is to tout just a little of our own brass instrument.

** In our general madness we published this article with Mark accompanying Liz. This was a genuine slip of the mind on behalf of the author who clearly meant Wendy. Knew it was Wendy. Would have said Wendy. But in a brief moment of oddness wrote Liz. Sorry Wendz.
