Gresham College was founded in 1557 under the will of Sir Thomas Gresham for the purpose of providing free public lectures of a high academic standard. We continue to fulfill this role, with lectures at Barnard's Inn and the Museum of London, although we have dropped the original obligation to repeat each lecture in Latin. All lectures are streamed on line on the Gresham College Facebook page and via the Gresham College website. Past lectures and written transcripts are on the website for viewing and free download. Think of Gresham College as London's version of Ted Talks.

Update from Cyanconnode Holdings (LON:CYAN) this morning forecasting material acceleration in H2. More jam tomorrow?

Recently, replies to comments have been displayed as a reply to a large number rather than as a reply to a numbered posting in todays SCVR. Like this "In reply to post #380604" Is this caused by my browser settings? Or is everyone seeing this? I much prefered the old style, so if anyone knows how I can get it back I'd welcome enlightenment.
