Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.
Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.
It's really more of an artists rendition - as it was created post-facto - but I actually built a working speaker amplifier on breadboard for authenticity reasons.
Thank you @vilmibm for the tiny pirate kingdom where you made us all guests.

@joe wow this hero image on this article reminds me of you -- https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-rise-fall-internet-art-communities
Bought a physical copy of Wired to read Paul Ford's article about why he still believes in (capital T) Tech.
Of course, you can just read it on the web here, too: https://www.wired.com/story/why-we-love-tech-defense-difficult-industry/
a man stopped in the middle of the road today, in his SUV, and got out - cars coming all around. He walked into the road in front of the car and bent down to pick up a hedgehog and move it onto the grass, clear of the pavement.
Well done Mr. Man, whoever you are. Thank you for taking the time to care.
I missed email debt forgiveness day. Huh.
Three years ago I spent that day crying in Euston station writing an email to one of my dad's best friends. I had just come off a 9 hour flight from Canada for a job interview so I was already sleep deprived (can't sleep on planes) and emotional (wanted this job, but was I really going to movey family to Canada?).
I never got a reply. I don't think I had email debt this year.
