It's just round the corner isn't it? I'm sure there's something I've forgotten.
Anyway, this is stuff you need to know if you're coming to Interesting.
8am - We can get into the hall to start setting up. If you'd like to come along then and help out I'd be very grateful. Chores will include putting out chairs, filling urns, draping bunting, carrying flight cases, saying 'testing testing 1,2,3' into microphones.
9am - Doors open officially. Come early and watch the exciting preparations or hang out with chums and sup coffee (NOTE: bring own coffee). To get in you need to bring your email/confirmation from eventbrite. We do not print the tickets.
10am - Interestingness starts with community singing. Much talking and presenting ensues.
(There'll be a break in here somewhere. We'll be providing boiling water, teabags, milk, sugar and instant coffee. If you want anything fancier than that you'll have to bring it yourself. Mine's a short, skinny, cappuccino please.)

12.30ish - Lunchtime. We won't be providing lunch. We're warning the cafe in the square to expect an influx, there are good cafes and pubs nearby. Or you could bring your own.
1.30pmish - Off we go again.
(Another break here too.)
4.30pmish - And we're done. We'd be grateful if everyone could help with the tidying up. And we're going to try and book the back room of the same pub as last time. Its name escapes me for now. Just for some post-Interesting drinks. We were going to try and do a proper post-Interesting party with Last.fm deejaying action but I've not got round to it and it's too late now. If anyone would like to organise a party let me know and I'll announce it here and on the stage.
Er. Anything you need to know that I've missed?

Ah - kids. A few people have said they're going to bring their children along. That's splendid. I think it makes the feel of the thing a whole lot friendlier. So feel free to do that. We can't provide any sort of official facilities I'm afraid, but they are completely welcome. And Arthur's bringing his DS and will be looking for challengers.
The best tag for all your social media doodahing is probably Interesting2008.
We're not providing wifi because the lack of it last time made the whole atmosphere a lot better. Even the hardcore wifi fans seemed to like it. But we'll be doing some sort of slow liveblogging via the medium of scribbles and drawing.
And I think that's it. See you on Saturday.
