1. Aaron Parecki: @BarnabyWalters Also worst case you can just print it out again at the terminal.

    @aaronpk whaaaaa

    You realise that in my mind this attitude basically makes you some sort of fearless adventurer wizard hero, who, ARMED with his MAGIC LIGHTS, fears not the CHECK-IN DESK and FLYING METAL BOXES and requires no A4 SHIELD to ward off the spectres of GETTING LOST IN SOME OTHER COUNTRY

  2. Aaron Parecki: @BarnabyWalters You still print your boarding pass on paper? ;-) I stick to magic lights all the way through.

    @aaronpk oh wow, I would be terrified that the magic lights would break or not work or run out of power or get lost or crash. I trust paper waaaay more than magic lights and can’t travel without my wad of A4 pieces of paper :)

  3. Genuine question to people who a lot: does the whole “pressing buttons and making lights change colour, then printing the results out onto A4 sheets of paper which magically enable you to travel to different countries” thing ever stop feeling profoundly weird?

  4. The fact that pressing buttons and watching lights on a screen change lets me fly to another country still weirds me out.

  5. Weird luggage on my KEF flight: overly decorative trophy in hand luggage, two tatty cardboard boxes held together with tape in hold luggage. Apparently this is a thing now.

  6. Aral Balkan: Mark the dates: the 2nd IndieWebCampUK is taking place in Brighton on the 7th & 8th of September. http://t.co/Vq5OSdzgoh

    Aral Balkan just booking my flights+accommodation etc., any news RE the design workshop you mentioned? Would be handy to know if solidified so I can adjust travel plans :)

  7. Got the last few bits of rubbish out of what was my workshop, saw Jovian Salak (have fun in Nepal!), packed most of my luggage and got all the bits of paper required to get to Iceland together. Leaving tomorrow at 12 noon, flight at 8 in the evening. Probably spending the hours at the airport watching studio ghibli films.

    , and all that good stuff.

  8. Back in Devon after a great fake-birthday weekend in London. Ate far too much cake, and watched more Captain Scarlet than probably healthy.
