Sorry for dropping out of sight unannounced for four weeks. Thanks to staging work on multiple longer projects, a vacation and two conference trips, my ability to stick to a writing schedule imploded. If it weren't for the fact that I've been awake from jet lag since 2 AM here in Newcastle, UK, there'd have been no newsletter this week either. Before I forget, I may have time in London on Sunday evening to pull together a late drinks meetup nearish Kings Cross. Lemme know if you'd want to join if that happens. I'll be taking a TBD train back from the Northeast in the late afternoon, so the schedule is a bit up in the air.
