Greenbelt Update

Greenbelt is going well. 20,000 people and lots to do. We saw Sixpence None the Richer last night with my girls. Quiet evening at the Jesus Arms Hotel. I am hosting the SLOT organizers at our campsite and I showed them around last night.

It was also Abigail’s birthday yesterday. This morning she had a pretty bad diabetic seizure and is currently in the first aid tent, getting better, of course.

I thought about taking Hannah to see Rob Bell talk but the line was ridiculously long and we decided not to. Shannon and Jessica are doing a social enterprise piece this afternoon at 3:30 in the Kitchen so we will all rock up and support them.

Nice to see Dave Tomlinson, Doug Gay and Peter Rollins again.


Andrew Jones launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.

    Tell the Slot organizers I said “hi” and thanks for their kind hospitality. Ad if you see Pete again, tell him I said “hi” too. I met Doug and Dave once but I doubt they remember me.
    Wish I was there but it was Slot or Greenbelt and I think I made the right choice.

    Nice to have a brief hello with you at the contributor’s tent and to meet your lovely daughter Hannah. Mine was having a melt down so I didn’t couldn’t stick around and I’m sure you were inundated with Hellos from others. Hope you had a good festival and hope to meet you some other time.
    All the best

    I haven’t made it to Greenbelt since 1989! Still, many fond memories from its days at Castle Ashby.
