Tomorrow I travel to Kielderhead Wildwood Project, UK, to begin a month-long #art residency about networks, linking mycorrhizal ( #myco ) networks in forests to community networks and technological networks.
In advance, I have published the sixth in a series of videos and text pieces for this project. This one is about the importance of place in social connections.

Currently writing some Go code for a contribution to an open-source project.
It's my first time working with Go and also my first time picking up a new language specifically to implement a feature I need.
Will see how I get on with a dive-into-the-details approach, rather than my usual start-with-the-basics style.
