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.

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

Every. Time.

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 is a single page app built with the latest monolithic client-side framework.

“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.

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.

On Brighton beach in the sunshine, watching the tide come in. The waves are surprisingly big today.

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.

Reminding myself that there’s a sea bass in the fridge.

Mustn’t forget that when I leave the office.

All these films are your yours except The Europa Report. Attempt no criticism there.

Thoroughly enjoyed meeting and chatting with @mala at the Indie Tech Summit.

I think he and @textfiles were separated at birth.

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.

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.
