This might seem a bit rich, I guess, coming from someone who barely leaves the house/office from one week to the next and, in fact, has created an entire virtual music festival in order to avoid doing so. But doesn't that make me something of an inspiration? If I can do it, so can you!
Apart from improving the circulation in our lower limbs and getting some fresh air in our lungs, who knows what may happen if we go out and Do More Stuff... The Outside World is an exciting place. We could meet people - you know, real people with noses and talky round holes (mouths, if you're not a Mighty Boosh fan). Seriously though, it could be useful - for business contacts, artistic inspiration or just relief from almighty boredom.
So, what kinds of things am I pledging to do during "Do More Stuff" month? Well, here are some ideas. Do feel free to join me.
- Going to Festival of Ideas to see fellow Twitterer and maths whizz Marcus Du Sautoy talk about numbers [18th May, 18.00-19.00, Explore At-Bristol].
- Talking to real life people about the environment for a new Bristol-based 'Green Cast' project.
- Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) South West meet up at the Two Cultures event (another Festival of Ideas thingamy) [21st May, 18.15-20.45, Watershed Media Centre].
- At last, attending Bristol Media's monthly "Media Tuesday" event - which I always miss because of work commitments [26th May, 18.15-20.00, Goldbrick House].
