Week 351

This is late, it’s about last week, the beginning of which seems a long time ago, before I came away to Austin, TX last Thursday.

I was very busy before leaving. If I count Pepys as work then I managed to fit 12 quite intense working days into the ten calendar days before I came away. People have worked much harder, but for someone who generally manages to avoid working evenings or, especially, weekends, it was enough.

I wrapped up, mostly, the bit of work I was doing for BERG on El Morro - it could have been more complete but it was OK, I think. And I finished a bunch of static HTML/CSS pages for the project with Somethin’ Else — that was a rush as they were needed for some early testing the day I get back to London, so had to be done before I left.

The rest of the week, after a long and tedious day’s travel, I’ve been at SXSW. I may write more on that when it’s completely over. The conference itself is frustrating, trying to be too many things to too many (13,000? 17,000?) people. But it’s been a good trip aside from that.

  • 1:49am: If you meet @benterrett be sure to ask for his slam poetry style rendition of 'Summertime' by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Well smart.
