My last post was titled gfs:visit=3… Now I’m up to gfs:visit=19, as you can see from the big ol’ list of visits I’m keeping in a spreadsheet. I’ve just returned from a trip to England, where I added another seven visits, including a return to the V&A, the Charles Dickens museum in Bloomsbury (nice tea and cake), and the gigantic National Tramway Museum in beautiful Derbyshire. I was there to attend the small and fun Laptops and Looms conference in an old (not dark or particularly satanic) mill in Cromford.
I’ve also begun working with a client in London, which is very exciting! More to come on that when we’re a bit further along. It was lovely to meet up with old friends and new, and I’ll hope to be back in London again before Christmas.
As I plan which other visits to write up, I’ve noticed I’m enjoying a couple of phenomena:
1. There is always a pile of jetsam somewhere, like this one tucked away at the National Tramway Museum…
2. Staff will use the flimsiest barriers you can imagine, which still seem to work:
Now that I’ve returned home, I’ll be writing more here and there about what’s happening over here. And, I keep a fairly up-to-date photo album of visits online. More up-to-date than blogging about each visit, to be sure!
Like this UI from the Barbican’s Digital Revolution exhibition. Ironically, nobody was willing to FOLLOW THE GIANT INSTRUCTIONS.
