It’s Summer

Personal lives are typically irrelevant to the Web, so if you don’t care about this blog as a personal journal, then jog on to save time. A lot of the content has been about computer vision (since 2004), but sometimes I just wish to share personal stories and this is my only personal space (unlike Techrights or various accounts which are merely hosted by a third party).

The past week or so has been great over here. It feels like summer. Last Thursday I went out for dinner with a friend and the following day to another restaurant with another friend, with whom I might start a company soon (we are both academics, he is a professor). The following day we met again and the day afterward there was BBQ out in the wild. But it was short-lived as time was limited (it was followed by music at my house for about 4 hours), so after some time riding in the sun and learning new areas around Manchester we prepared for a massive BBQ and a bonfire, followed by a pub crawl. The temperatures today might reach 28 degrees (centigrade), and there is no end in sight yet to this sort of heat wave that motivates me to go cycling again in a while. Every day is full of play and fun.

In other personal news, we’ve finally found a venue for the wedding and the missus is looking at some dresses. With a quarter of the day being consumed by conversations with her I have not had much time for activism as of late. I hope this will change.
