We did the first one of these this morning. I’m up for doing it weekly. Will do a better invite next time. At the peak we had 16 or 17 people. It still felt manageable.
And Brian broke us the news of the Prime Minister’s infection while we were live.
But Facebook won’t allow me to post the contents of the chat window because something in there goes against Community Guidelines (I think it was a particularly crufty URL from Brian). Anyway, that’s why I still have a blog.
These things were said:
09:59:03 From Brian Condon : Suggest we use the chat as well for people who want to speak.
