Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment Did LEGO recently change Millennium Falcon with a smaller kit?
The scary thing is, I have the first three on that list ;) Had small children when the UC version came out, so couldn't justify it :( And the 2011 one's close enough to the 2004 one that I can't really drum up the enthusiasm. Don't get me started on Slave I's though ;)

comment How should I model a Heroica Banquet hall?
With regards to size, maybe, but if it were on one plate (8x8 I guess) then you could use a few together to make a larger one. I'm also looking for recommendations on decoration - food or just plates ;)

comment Do LEGO bricks float?
Whilst a solid block of ABS would sink, LEGO bricks are hollow. The issue of floating is displacement - this is how steel and iron ships float - they displace as much water than they weigh, and so are buoyant.

comment What is the Mindstorms NXT Education kit?
Ok, well, I'll rephrase that as "The educational software is different to the standard software as it can also gather data from the NXT brick" - I believe that the both versions of the NXT software are based on LabView - unlike the RIS software which was very limited in it's interface and options.

comment What is the Mindstorms NXT Education kit?
The software is sold separately so that you can purchase multiple licenses of it for each PC in the lab, or buy more sets without having to purchase the software again. Note also that the educational software is slightly different to the standard software as it can gather data from the NXT brick for processing

comment Are DUPLO blocks compatible with LEGO blocks in any way?
Duplo can sit happily on top of plates, but plates and tiles only balance on top of Duplo, there's no real clutch between them that way.

@J.PabloFernández That's probably part of the reasoning for sure :)
