'allo. I didn't see that anyone posted a cross thread, and I'm awake and around, so hope I'm not stepping on any toes here. Welcome everybody to the weekly Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Tay, Odeck, & Backtalk cross thread. This week I'm live from Germany, and will still be here next week if anyone wants to take a shot at hosting the cross thread.*

What are your summer vacation plans like?

*You can send me a message on twitter to share the thread to all the participating blogs/any blog you don't have author privs on.
