Week 362

A few days late, but last week… No client work in Week 362, but (or maybe “and”) a satisfying and fun few days.

Monday to Wednesday was mainly spent on a forthcoming personal project, which will hopefully see the light of day next week. It’s about news, but is smaller, more achievable and less woolly than whatever I was trying to do with news earlier in the year. I’m pleased with it so far and need to add more polish later this week.

Thursday and Friday I went to the St Bride Library conference 2010, “DIY Design”. It was an interesting couple of days and I’ll hopefully type up the small number of notes I made soon.

Listening to people talk about topics I’m interested in, but that aren’t immediately related to what I do all day, seems a good way to approach conferences. Pushing a little at the edges of my knowledge, rather than expecting to hear new things in stuff I’m overly familiar with.
