Responsive Day Out was immensely rewarding but also immensely tiring. So today I’ve been taking it nice and easy, coming down from yesterday’s high.

What’s really nice is that quite a few of the speakers and attendees are still around in Brighton today, also taking it easy and wandering around town. I met up with a bunch of people for breakfast and then spent the day with Emil ostensibly looking for the right kind of herrings to celebrate midsummer. But actually it was just a excuse to go from coffee shop to bar, enjoying a nice lazy Saturday in Brighton.

It was a busy week with lots of commuting up and down to London, so I’ve been looking forward to a weekend of unwinding.

Jessica and I like to spend our Saturday afternoons doing our shopping for the weekend, planning out some nice leisurely meals. Today we went down to the Open Market, a recently-renovated collection of stalls under one roof selling local produce and goods. The market is also home to an excellent Greek café, where we had lunch.

I guess it’s part of the gentrification of the London Road area. If this is gentrification, bring it on.

Something for the weekend

Semantic Camp is taking place in London this weekend. Well, I say camp but that isn’t totally accurate… (yes, that was an attempt at humour).

I’m hoping to make it up for the second day of the event. If nothing else, I really want to see Jon’s sequel to his Specificity Snap game: Semantopoly. Alas, I shan’t be able to make it along on Saturday though. Instead, I’ll be enjoying afternoon tea with a dollop of burlesque.
