May: "Do More Stuff" month

I am declaring May "Do More Stuff" month. This means getting out of the office, leaving my email to overflow for days at a time and generally experiencing the wonder of The Outside World. And I shall be encouraging everyone else to follow suit - go on, unchain yourself from your desk for a couple of hours, leave your Twitter account to stagnate and make contact with reality.

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.
Well, that's enough for starters. But I will be accepting invitations... so send 'em along. Together, we can all Do More Stuff. Oh, and I've created a logo - feel free to pilfer and take part.
