I love those moments when you’re sitting with someone, and you hit some kind of resonant frequency. An idea will have been building in me, a new fascination, or one that’s been brewing for years, that hasn’t found a way out. Something in the room triggers one of us to try, and then it builds and expands till it’s out and shared between us. I love those moments and the friendships they’ve lead to.
Every now and then I’ve read something online that makes me really want to spend an evening drinking and sharing with someone. Like some dude called James writing about Hell Hath No Fury on a message board or J Fores’ food adventures in London’s margins.
This is an attempt to see if the internet can help me find a few more of those resonant moments, and the people I can share them with.
