Let’s Play!

This morning I took the usual route through the centre of Bristol, past the old Bridewell Police Station, cut through by The Lanes, up to the top of Corn Street, over Bristol Bridge and then down Victoria street. But, cycling into work this morning something felt different. It felt like something might happen. Something unusual and exciting, which is pretty rare for a Monday morning. This is the lingering effect of Igfest, Bristol’s interesting games festival, which Dan and I took part in on Saturday, along with a few hundred other people.

The WEE Question – Don’t call it a Tweetchat!

  I’ve never really got into the whole tweetchat thing, mostly because the timing is generally inconvenient, but also because there’s something slightly narcissistic about them. Sometimes it feels like they’re more about delivering the killer line and getting 30 re-tweets than sharing ideas. The WEE Question is a bit different. It’s a warm up for the main event this Wednesday (14th March 2012), an ice breaker if you like, a chance to get your head in the same place as the other people attending and an opportunity to get ideas on the topic from a wider audience. There’s only...
