In case you missed it, dawdlr has creaked into action. This is Russell's version of slow Twitter. "What are you doing, you know more generally?" updated twice a year. It's one of the things the internet was invented for - a lovely mix of online and offline. There's a nice write-up as part of the slow blogging movement (?) in the New York Times. If you want to join in, hurry - less than 6 months to go!
