D&D write-ups

A quick upload for those who might be interested, but missed my posterous postings, these are the write-ups from the two sessions I suggested at Devoted and Disgruntled this weekend just gone. Full reflective blog post to follow, hopefully, but suffice to say a brilliant experience, such a thrill to be in the same room as so many of the theatre folk I’d only before now known on Twitter, and to meet so many brilliant, effervescent people in general. Open space is also totally the way to go for conferences. I still don’t quite understand why tech and lefty political conferences are still run in the top-down speaker/panel format… But yes, more posts to follow as soon as I have the chance, including exciting announcements.

    the path by tale of tales (well worth a sniff if you have not played) is the same unsettling experience I received at a punchdrunk show.
