Lots of interesting things today, perhaps everyone is back from whatever shape of summer vacation they managed to take!
Tomorrow I am speaking at FITC Web Unleashed, online of course this year. I very much miss getting to meet up with folk at in-person events. Online is great, and I am pretty sure I'll carry on doing online workshops even once travel is possible again. For many people traveling to an in-person event wasn't possible before the pandemic, and it's great to be able to reach those people. However, there are some things that are made easier when you can all sit in a room together. I'll be glad when we can combine the two.
