5:43pm on Sunday, 5th October, 2008:
I've been to many conferences in my time, in many countries. Never has the conference been called off the day before it was due to start, however, until now.
Tomorrow, I was due to speak at Virtual Worlds Forum Europe, but when I got home from my fortnightly trip to Newmarket I found a message on my answerphone informing me that the conference has been cancelled due to a serious incident that has occurred at the venue. Police are letting no-one in.
A quick scoot to BBC news explains why: someone was shot dead outside at 5:40 this morning.
Hmm, well I think I'll still head into London, not least because I just spent £90 on train tickets to get me there and back Monday and Tuesday. It's a bit of a shock, though!
