October in review

This was going to be a week in review, but then I realised I hadn't done one for a while.

Week 1: 3-9

Week 2: 10-16

Week 3: 17-23

  • Hung around ISWC in Kobe for a week.
  • Climbed a small mountain.
  • Worked on adding literature to a submission for WWW I'd ultimately miss the deadline for.
  • Got the SocialWG approval to take LDN to CR.
  • Worked on the WWW workshop proposal.
  • Finally published PubSub as a FPWD.
  • Spent some time touristing and eating in Osaka.

Week 4: 24-30

  • Moved onto my brother's floor, in Nerima just outside Tokyo.
  • Continued improving the WWW workshop proposal.
  • Did a bunch of work on the new Linked Research site.
  • Still working on new issues being opened on LDN, mostly editorial.
  • W3C admin stuff to do with the LDN CR and Webmention PR.
  • Had a couple of not-really-get-out-of-bed days. Today is one of them, but my brain is finally coming online around 5pm.
  • Learnt enough kanji to start grocery shopping (soy bean, meat, fish, egg, dairy).
  • Explored a few areas of Tokyo, including:
    • Roppongi, which has lots of fancy pants art and a big park and two excellent vegan restaurants.
    • Shiodome, which I went to for the advertising museum, but it was closed. Wandered around some of the giant mall buildings, and stumbled into the viewing area of the 46th floor of the Caretta, which is surprisingly free. The turbo lifts are super fast. There's also wifi and power. Unfortunately there's also an steady influx of tourists, but maybe it's not a bad place to work.
    • Walked through the Imperial Palace grounds, just as everything was closing so I only got to go around the edge.
