Eyjafjallajokull

As you may have noticed, we are all watching this volcano thing with riveted attention. In the past 18 months, I have simply come to accept that on any given weekend either I, or any number of my friends, will be travelling - this has suddenly come to a complete stop, with no clear indication of how much longer the situation will continue.

While I could go on lamenting the situation, I am actually more fascinated by the reaction to it:

  • TEDxVolcano; speaker event tomorrow night presented by a number of folks stuck in London,
  • First Round Capital; office hours in London for startup to go meet with them,
  • Efforts to get people where they need to be
While I would encourage everyone to take advantage of these, and any other offerings, I would also propose a moments thought to whether you can help anyone out (space to work on Monday, place to sleep if hotels are getting to expensive, etc.)

In the meantime, let's hope Eyjafjallajokull decides to quiet down again soon...
