We were in Coober Pedy, I think, or definitely getting close to the edge of the Zone, one Saturday or Sunday morning… it was definitely morning… but after a week on the road, days loose their meaning.

Matt Jones gave this talk at #interaction15 earlier this year, which went up on vimeo some four weeks ago, which I’m only watching and processing now because I’ve been elsewhere.
