My impression of the house:
  • LOVED IT! Would probably spend a few weeks around in June (between the BBC and the Vienna calling, and after the Vienna calling). Well, unless opposition, will. Dedicating some money to it right now.
  • I should have cleaned more, I feel, but I think I did well because I will also have to adapt. Many people! It was motivating to work together.
  • Felt some tensions: some are remarkably well dealt with (I believe), some are solvable (who's cooking management), some are infrastructure-related (space, rooms etc). I think people are doing great.
  • Not sure how sustainable such high rate of hosting is. I'm concerned for safety of material in the flat, especially if the websitecomes first for a google search with hospitality+Berlin. Problem is not surfers, it's people with bad intentions. Dealing with them on the safety team, I'm afraid we are targetable with the way it is right now. Brainstorm on ways to improve safety?
  • Was very caught by surprised by how Tau and I connected. I felt I was talking.. not yet too much but a lot.. but it was a dialogue. She interviews, but she also shares stories back to me. I was really caught by surprised. I was also feeling ´... cared for, but in a way I didn't expect. I thought I was just an image for them, someone annoying them every once in a while, I was unsure how comfortable I'd be with all those people I've argued with.. and I actually felt great.
  • I hope that people will post back a bit on the urban exploration, but won't be able to meet my own deadline unless I write it tomorrow. My friend is trying to get me to go out and visit Vienna, so I'm afraid I won't have Internet until Monday, if the cable I forgot in Berlin can be mailed to me tomorrow and sent expresspost. Fingers crossed!
  • I'm excited about moving to Istanbul, but I'm emotionally unstable at the moment. I sometimes cry inside since I left Scotland, but nothing's getting out. I also feel some sort of deep love but for a lot of people, while I'm still longing for a more individual love- partnership. It's hard to describe with words.
  • I got a second contact with a publishing company today, they're based in Afghanistan... So who knows?
  • Tau, can I use one of your pic as a profile picture on Facebook/CS ? I feel pretty much like that girl on the pics.
  • Getting slowly prepared for April 4. A pity for the haircut, but I'll see it as Tau's hair-Mandala. Imperrmanence...
