In Brighton, hearing and feeling the distant rumble of an Avro Vulcan miles away at the Shoreham airshow.

Chicago, I am finally in you (after an unexpected detour via Detroit … a Detroitour, if you will).

Preparing for cryosleep.
See you on the other side, Chicago.
Bumped up to business class. Squee!
Going to Chicago. brb

Packing a bag for my trip to Chicago tomorrow.
Rolling with the punches.

Watching 2001: A Space Odyssey. Again.
My favourite film of all time. Every viewing reveals something new.

Listening to my brother being interviewed on Irish radio about his crazy running:

Chatting with @BillT who has very kindly popped down to Brighton for the afternoon. If any Brightonerds want to join us, let me know.

He looked over all He had made, and saw that it was good.
And on the seventh day, He made backups.

At the 16-minutes, 15-seconds mark in this video, I begin to grind my teeth and bite my tongue.

Rocking out to hold music. If this conference call doesn’t end up happening, I’m okay with that.

Catching glimpses of the International Space Station in between the clouds.
Hello Oleg, Alexander, Alexander, Steve, Maxsim, and Reid.
Helping to clean up the seagull vomit.
(Not some kind of front-end code euphemism.)
A seagull just smacked into the window of the @Clearleft office, wandered around dazed for a little bit, and then vomited.

Looking out at the choppy waters of the ocean on this windy day as the waves rise and fall, and thinking “Well, that’s just swell.”
Sunday, August 10th, 2014
Messing around with local storage, application cache, and progressive enhancement.
Looking forward to @JohnAllsopp’s book on this stuff.

Watching a Melvyn Bragg documentary on Thomas Paine—hello, Lewes!—while playing this hornpipe on my bouzouki: https://thesession.org/tunes/83

Off to the Basketmaker’s for a pint and a semantic smackdown.
Planning a punch-up in the pub with @rem. Just deciding on the pub.
Bumped into @rem on the walk into work. I think I blogged at him.

Stopping in at The Reliance for a sneaky afternoon pint.
Londoners of Old Street: I have three hours to kill. Where should I go? What should I do?
Interacting with The Deleted City at the @BarbicanCentre’s #DigitalRevolution and getting angry all over again.
Fuck you, Yahoo, fuck you.
The Shard has arms.

I have never killed a person. I have never punched a puppy or a kicked a kitten. I have never made an HTML email.
Tuesday, August 5th, 2014
On my way back to Brighton after a very productive day workshopping with the lovely @EF people in London.
On my way to Chelsea, wondering if Elvis Costello knows something I don’t.

My second attempt at kayaking on the river Ouse went much better (and drier) than my first attempt. Much less pain, much more fun.

Might as well face it, you’re addicted to mackerel.
Taunting my co-workers by sending them direct messages with links in them. Because I can. And they can’t (which makes no sense whatsoever).
