Feeling slightly more human again

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read


  1. To answer your question, in absolute terms, no. But everything is relative and if your existence involves large quantities of red tape and paper, then yes. Mind you I did do a day’s course last week on explosives appreciation. The demos were rather good!

  2. “Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.” (Gandhi)
    I think this encapsulates Daniel’s thoughts apart from the explosives. Gandhi had good cause to be wary of explosives.

  3. Things happen, and you make them mean something, what is important is they mean something beautiful to you, as they mean nothing to everyone else. The fun part is getting everyone else to understand what ‘it’ means so you can both share the experience!
    Hull – when?

  4. 26th, I think. Staying the night of the 25th at the Ibis on Ferensway (there’s an Ibis on Ferensway? Blimey); heading off to Rotherham for Thursday night.
    All a bit touch-and-go still, however.

  5. Bugger, I’ve meetings both days I can’t get out of. If it drifts toward the end of the week, or following week tho…
    Yes, the IBIS is the one down the Castle Street end I ‘think’, and pretty sure it’s not a typical Ibis, like the monstrosity in Stevenage 🙁
