The thought-fox

Who reads this anymore? Who writes here anymore? :)

Well, for some reason the mood takes me to post here again. Lots of stuff has been happening over the last few months. I've been living in London for more than 7 months. I've worked on some pretty cool projects over here. I spent a great deal of time at Channel4 working in "New Media". Poncy name, but great team of guys and good work. I've met some very talented people. I've learned a hell of a lot. I've become harder, more cynical perhaps, more experienced. I've worked in Australia, New Zealand and the UK and learned a hell of a lot about consulting and contracting in the process. I've seen Ireland and the UK and parts of Italy. I'm about to head off to France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Fiji (:D). But my time is drawing to a close here. I've seen a lot of London in 7 months. It's quite a special place and Londoners are like no other (just ride on the tube during peak hour for week after week, month after month). But I've realised you could live here for years and still be discovering the place and I've realised I don't want to live here. It's a good feeling to see that.

I've been toying with Lift and Scala lately, and thinking about how I might one day work with it or even kick off my own business using it or other cool tech.

I've read a ton of books. I've read Kant, Popper, Wittgenstein, Russell, Heidegger, Plato, Aristotle, Joyce, Rousseau, Thoreau, Pound, Shakespeare, Rilke, Beckett, Nietzsche, Homer (this year) and all the other books I tackled last year on 52 books.

I've met so many new people, put myself in so many different and challenging situations; discovered new music, new food, new ideas, enjoyed incredible art, ogled awe-inspiring architecture, started learning a new language (Volim živjeti u Sydneyu!). I've fallen more deeply in love with an incredible girl. It's all been a beautiful experience.

I'm going to put more time and effort into www.mutteringmadman.com. A new blog engine I've written in Lift is going to be up there soon.

And that's it. Just had to put that out there. I'll miss London and the experiences I've enjoyed here. But it makes sense to not be here much longer.

Happy days :)
