Everyone else is playing Find Me this weekend whereas I'm more inclined to lose myself. Nevertheless I'm between two hillforts on a border path that's not Hadrian's.

I'm not frustrated with people playing Find Me Viv. Was that what you meant? I really just loved the light on this rusty vessel.

Oh no, I have no problem with people playing Find Me, though I'm not really engaging with it as I'm not in London.

London-centricity is a whole other conversation ;)

No, I meant that my ideal Sunday is about losing myself somewhere beautiful, not being found!

It really is, and my only real regret on the project.

I'd love to do something nationwide at least.

Hey Alfie, I can guess exactly why you picked London if the aim was to get the greatest number of participants physically at the locations in a short period of time. Your other option would probably have been a major festival. I'm not criticising at all, I think it's a great awareness-raising project, potentially. I'm going to be watching to see if the locations discovered contribute to an understanding of the spread of the disease - if it makes thematic sense then I'm happy. I quite like the idea that XDRTB are going viral in pursuit's a bacterial infection isn't it?

London-centricity of the media/new-media industry is a way bigger subject. I think Moblog does fall into that trap as much as many other sites...but also has lots of activity going on elsewhere.

On a very trivial note, I read an interview with Cyndi Lauper on the train to work this morning. It said she was playing Shepherd's Bush this week and then touring nationally. She's already played Manchester and Southampton and any Birmingham fans catching that interview would have been oblivious to the fact they could have caught her there tonight......

So no one guessed where I was then? I may have given it away with my next post!

Next to a water tank?

Yes! Well done Sir Findo Gask. You win the notional welshcake.
