I took part in a rather science fictional thing last night. A trans-national wake fro someone still alive moderated and shared over twitter.
I’m not sure where everyone else was on the #forIain hashtag last night, but I was in The Netherlands at the Planck conference when I joined in with the mass single malt drinking in honour of Iain (M) Banks.
It was sad, but also a little cathartic. I quite like the idea of holding a wake for someone before they’re gone, but know that’s not always possible.
