And so I return from the mountain bringing wisdom and knowledge.
In other words, my move has now finished, and I am pretty much settled into my new address. New landline phone number is 0208 220 7334.
For the next couple of weeks I'm going to be a bit busy with various fun stuff. This in addition to the fun and hijinks I get from just being at work.
On the 23rd of July (this Saturday) I'm giving a little talk at the BBC supported Open-Tech about how to blog without losing your job. Open-Tech looks to be very interesting especially as Gia is chairing the little bit I'm involved with. You can check out the rest of the schedule, it looks like it's going to be a great day. Come along and say “Hi”.
All I have to do is write my talk between now and then…
On the 26th of July I've been asked to discuss this book with a book group at Imperial college.
All I have to do is actually read the book betwen now and then…
In August Jeannie Cool (an American friend of mine, who I stayed with in Seattle) is coming to London to stay with me for a couple of days – so I need to get my “think like a tourist” hat on to make sure that her first time in London is memorable.
Also in August, I'll be heading out to Mexico for a week. All paid for by my rather excellent brother (without him lending me plenty of money, tmy house move would have been an utter nightmare – Cheers Bruv).
At some point I'll also tell you about the webcomic that I'm writing, I have a cool artist drawing it, and the first few are up (and hidden on the web somewhere). The problem is that the server seems to a be a bit flaky, so half the time you can't actually see the comic.
It's also nice to see that people are, on the whole, being polite in my comments threads, especially over some fairly touchy subjects. I've learned some interesting stuff reading what different people have had to say about various subjects.
