Hello! I’m Dan. I insist I’m not really a programmer, or a designer or even a photographer, but I’m probably all three. My crippling impostor syndrome battles daily my addiction to creating Stuff, so I compulsively whittle words, code and photos until they’re so supernaturally shiny that they glow with an otherworldly light. And then I decide that they’re rubbish. Enough about me though, because I’ve joined MetaBroadcast to eat cake and make things pretty.
On top of the culture shock I’ve also gone from full time to part time and there’s a whole lot to cram into a two day week: from the unfeasibly filling Foodie Fridays, to the Metaversaries, to daily Happy Hour meetings (which I don’t really understand but everyone sounds awfully clever), to the actual work: prototyping cool stuff with metadata.
Happily I also happened to join right before the quarterly away day, which this time featured a fairly chilled putter about central London exploring various alleys in search of the fabled and illusive Seven Noses of Soho which are totally a thing. It was curious and interesting on its own, and once you factor in the sun, okonomiyaki in Russell Square and more coffee and icecream than you can easily deal with; it was a great day out.
I’m outside my comfort zone, I’m learning fast, and I’m making cool stuff. Once I put Sass in all the things and get the hang of saying no to cake it’s going to be a grand old time.
