UAM leaving


· UAM · Fremantle ·

I'm off to Europe tomorrow for the Wikimedia Hackathon, and this morning went to the gym down on Clontarf Road next door to where I used to work at UAM. I left there in 2016, and headed to Europe for Wikimania at Esino Lario; that was a bit of a turning point in my life, because I ended up getting a job at the WMF after that trip. This time, I'm heading off to Europe again, and the UAM building is now being demolished. I stood for a while this morning watching the big tin shed being crunched up, and it was strangely moving! It feels like it's taken me this long to have that place out of my life.
