069 :: Nice

I missed posting last weekend due to being super busy with a friends engagement party and the subsequent hangover. It’s Wednesday now and I can barely remember what went on…

*looks at diary*


I had an MRI on Wednesday. Just a general check in after 16 years of Crohn’s Disease. I had to drink a ton of laxatives so that meant the rest of the day hanging out with the squirtle sqaud.

Oh yeah. Had a great time in central on Monday at a social thing full of internet weirdos.

I met with the founder of a super cyberpunk real estate project for Lunch on Friday. Hung out with some old/former colleagues over coffee and then went to see a show and tell from Common Knowledge at newspeak house

Having been to their public sprint review, I am extremely impressed at the high level of operation going on in this outfit.

Reading

I finished Dune. Not the first one, but book 8 – of the whole main chronicles series. I’ve read all 8 of them since Jan and quite frankly I’m all dune’d out. I have some notes towards doing a podcast on it soon.

I just started reading Tim’s Infinite Detail. It has one hell of an opening.

Music

This performance of Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto no.2 by Anna Fedorova is incredible.
