A correspondent writes to ask what BRIG is - since I referred to it the other day. Well, BRIG is what we've come to call the offices/studio we share with BERG, Ruby Pseudo and assorted friends including Chris, Phil, James, James and Leila. (We're also lucky enough to have Tinker upstairs, and Matt.)
And, I have to say, it's the most completely inspiring and enjoyable environment I could imagine. These are brilliant and nice people. All doing interesting and unusual things. Certainly, sometimes the power fails, we have quite a lot of ants and I don't like being responsible for the toilets. But one of the things we really wanted to do, way back, was rent a space and invite a variety of imaginative and pleasant people to share it. I think doing that makes good things happen. We're not all making things together yet. We chat a bit around the kettle but there's not as much mingling as I'd hoped. You can't force that though, it'll come. Perhaps.
Anyway. That's what BRIG is.
