Geekend in Ironbridge

I’m in a lovely little cottage in the town of Ironbridge, the self-styled birthplace of industry. This is the setting for the current Britpack geekend, and the turnout is pretty darn big.

We’ve been doing some touristy stuff; strolling through the quaint village in lovely weather, eating pub lunches, going to the Enginuity part of the museum of iron, and this evening we went to a fireworks display at a Victorian town.

Of course, the real reason for travelling all this way is to feed our latest dirty habit: playing Werewolf with fellow geeks. That’s what we did tonight, ensconced in our cosy cottage. Now, with the air thick with paranoia and recriminations, I think I’ll call it a night.

Before leaving tomorrow, I must remember to actually walk across the eponymous iron bridge and take some more pictures.

It looks like I’m going to have to miss the Brighton Bloggers meetup tomorrow night in the Wi-Fi enabled Black Lion pub. There’s a Salter Cane gig happening down at the Freebutt and I have yet to master the art of bilocation.

Adam Greenfield’s website just got even better. It now uses a lean mean combo of XHTML and CSS.

It’s been a wild weekend of music.

Despite the warmest October since records began, I’m not going to let the nice weather fool me.
