Some Saturday blogging about #scenius, small groups, peer support and ambitions (delusions?) of improving the world http://www.mcqn.net/mcfilter/archives/thinking/small_groups_and_the_does_liverpool_salon.html
Very impressed, but not surprised, to find that @philgyford's weeknotes blog posts have permalinks to individual sections. Nice attention to detail Phil!
Just want to give a shout-out to Audacity, which as far as I'm concerned is the open source creative tool that actually achieves the promise of open source creative tools. It gets significantly better every release and releases every few months, and the UI gets better and better (the key thing most open source tools don't achieve). If you tried Audacity a few years ago or more and decided it was unstable or clunky to use, download the latest version. You might be pleasantly surprised.
With that book finished I can almost see the end of my to-read pile! I mean, there are still six books sat on the bedside table but for the first time in a couple of years I might need to start looking through the secondary, virtual queue 🙂 https://openlibrary.org/people/adrianmcewen/books/want-to-read

It took 45 minutes from the start of the march before I left the Rialto and I wasn't at the back. It took 30 minutes to march to St George's Plateau, so the route was a line of people for more than quarter of an hour. Loads of support from motorists at every junction #BlackLivesMatter (more at https://www.instagram.com/p/CBYREeBA9AO/)

Haven't been sharing many of my Interesting Things on the Internet posts here of late. Last week's had sudoku; industrial strategy; Facebook's poor behaviour; design fiction; the N95 face mask designer's bio... http://www.mcqn.net/mcfilter/archives/links/interesting_things_on_the_internet_june_1st_2020.html

Got the basic example up and running. It's a bit flaky, but not too shabby
