Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Ourscreen lets you screen films yourself, in the UK


Ourscreen lets anyone pick a film and a participating cinema, pick a time-slot for screening and then try and sell tickets to it. I think it's a brilliant idea and was really excited when a similar scheme arose in the US a few years ago and I'm delighted that something similar is now available in the UK.

Once a minimum number of tickets is sold the event is confirmed and can go ahead... but more than one person can bid for the same screening time so if their event sells more tickets than yours then theirs wins.


There are participating cinemas all over the UK though I'm obviously interested in just the London ones - the nearest one to me is Greenwich Picturehouse - and they have a fantastic range of films, the current list is below (with their permission, thanks for sending it to me Ourscreen!). You can also suggest new films so obviously I suggest the entire back catalogue of Brendan Fraser's films, The Dish and Independence Day :)

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
