Would recommend going to see Dimitry if you get the chance. Quite a funny man too! Have your read his book? There’s a review here: http://zone5.org/2008/06/27/reinventing-collapse/
hey Tom — thanks for that! the book looks great ;)
I hope to be going, but with luck I should be taking care of a very small baby by then so can’t be entire sure I’ll make it.
