Back when I worked in an office with a team of people, and it was the Friday afternoon before I was about to vanish from the office for a while, I’d send out an email titled “Where’s Jason?” with all my travel details. Well, I don’t work in an office anymore, but I do need to let the readers of this site know what’s going on.
Next week I’ll be in England and Scotland. On Monday (March 23) at 6 p.m. you can find me and my Upgrade podcast co-host Myke Hurley hanging out at the Big Chill House in Kings Cross. It’s an informal meet-up, so if you’re in central London and want to stop by and say hello—or is it hullo?—please do. You can tell me you read Six Colours and I’ll try not to stare at that extra “u” you slipped in there.
I’ll probably be kicking around Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday night, March 26. Look to Twitter to see if my whereabouts might involve getting a pint somewhere. (It almost certainly will.) I’ll also probably be hanging out somewhere in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday night, March 28.
The following week I’ll be in Killarney, Ireland for the Úll conference. Last year’s Úll was an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to this year’s event. My ancestry is almost entirely1 English, Scottish, and Irish—these are my people. There’s black tea and dark beer and really, what could be better?
This is my first major trip since I started Six Colors. Posting may be light, but I’ve asked Dan Moren to keep an eye on things and I’m expecting to write as I travel. With any luck, site readers won’t notice much difference, other than items being posted much earlier than normal.
Except, of course, for my direct male ancestor, Gose Heinrich Schnell, who emigrated to America from Darmstadt, Germany around 1735. ↩
