Post-work beach beers.
Doing a lot of reading. Fighting off that bit of my brain that says this isn’t being “productive” …’cos it totally is too being productive.

Hot, sweaty, and thoroughly rocked out. That was a fun @SalterCane gig.

Every morning I open my chat and IRC clients and this stupid part of my brain keeps expecting to see @ChloeWeil’s username.

Went kayaking on the river Ouse.
Also went in the river Ouse.
Also knackered now.

“Born To Be Relatively Unconventional” is my new jam.
“When I finish this cup of tea, I’m going to have a beer.”
—A thought, in my brain, just now.

Heading back to Brighton after a nice afternoon in London chatting to some people at Auntie Beeb.
Imagining a dystopian alternate reality where gov.uk is a single page app built with the latest monolithic client-side framework.

Planning a trip to London tomorrow and trying to imagine how I would get by without http://traintimes.org.uk/ and its lovely hackable URLs.
Weird Artificial Intelligence Yankovic.
Soooo excited to have Cory Doctorow back for @dConstruct ten years on!

Updating my job title.
“Pausing, for a moment, he continues.”
Another line, five paragraphs later, from the same @NetMag feature.
“He pauses for a minute before continuing.”
An actual line from the @NetMag feature on me.
L’esprit de l’escalier misanthropique.
People in the Brighton sunshine with “free hugs” signs.
“You look like you need a hug!” shouts a woman at me and laughs with her friends.
Looking forward to making some noise with @SalterCane for a few hours this afternoon.

Just got some exciting http://2014.dconstruct.org/ news.
Let’s just say if you don’t have your ticket yet, you might want to change that.

Feeling grateful for sunshine, and music, and food, and @wordridden, and kind words from good friends.

Making music helps a little.

I don’t know which thought is worse: that @ChloeWeil’s suicide was inevitable; or that it was preventable.
Both are horrible.

That feeling when you immerse yourself in an activity—coding, writing, drawing—and the the world falls away.
Wishing I could feel it now.
Trying (and failing) to process some terrible, terrible news.

Football commentators are beginning to spot the exponential rate of Germany’s goal-scoring, heralding fear of some kind of goal singularity.
Heading for home.
Remembered the sea bass.
Reminding myself that there’s a sea bass in the fridge.
Mustn’t forget that when I leave the office.

Today was a nice day in Brighton.
Pew Pew Pew!
On the beach.
People on Twitter criticise my choice of programming language and text editor.
I carry on shipping code.

A nice day to be beside the seaside.
Listening to music at the bandstand.
On the beach for Paddle Round The Pier.
Saturday, July 5th, 2014
Writing some code so I can post images to my site.
All these films are your yours except The Europa Report. Attempt no criticism there.

Laughing out loud at @jennschiffer’s Medium post on the bus home.
Well done, @aral, for putting together a fast-paced, thought-provoking Indie Tech Summit. Thanks for having me.
The only downside of being at the Indie Tech Summit today is that I’m missing all the dachshund action at @Clearleft Towers.

Practicing my little spiel for tomorrow’s https://indietech.org/summit/
Should be a fun day.
A British remake of Jaws, set in Brighton, where a rogue great white seagull on a food-snatching rampage terrifies both locals and tourists.

Dreamt I was in a moonbase. It was surprisingly realistic and undreamlike. Subconscious mundane science fiction.
