Recently I have been exploring blockchain and cryptocurrency, there is a lot I can write up on, so the best place for that is to publish it on nicklewis.blog but what if I were to publish this on the Ethereum blockchain? I will come back to this in just a moment.
My writing process, in fact my entire work-related process at some point involves writing it all down. The process of writing helps you formulate your ideas with greater solidity than just, thinking to yourself, "I will remember that for later". If you are lucky to be blessed with an amazing memory, then I envy that, mine isn't what it used to be, I do remember odd things but a lot of the time some important stuff, well, how do I put this, it conveniently falls into the darker recesses of my mind shall we say. That memory then lies somewhere amongst the others that suddenly bolt to the top in the middle of the night for no reason at all disturbing my sleep and my entire family!
Nowadays this writing process starts in Obsidian, all of it pretty much and I use a tagging system (which I may or may not write about another day) that helps me bring those ideas to the surface. If only we could do that with our brains!
My process now is to write it all down in Obsidian because it helps me make connections with other notes, ideas, anecdotes or even highlights I've gathered from other online sources. Tools like Readwise, which is another topic I shall cover, are fantastic and there is an Obsidian plugin that allows you to import them automatically. These notes can then be gathered and dropped into a markdown file under my nicklewis.blog project but also they can be added to my new writing spot on the blockchain, Mirror.xyz
The above NFT is the first that I’ve created via the Mirror platform, so feel free to grab one. Funds will be used to continue exploring and demonstrating the possibilities on offer via web3. Not to mention more photographs, though I may write more about those under a separate Mirror project…
I voted for a number of people based on descriptions this week. One standout for me was this guy, Elliot Cole
Looks like he made it into the top ten, which I was really pleased about. I started off with 10 vote tokens, now have 20 for next Wednesday.
Taken on a walk around Eton last night. I spotted this fine pair in the window display of the Eton Antique Bookshop. Later on I heard HRH had spent some time in hospital, seems hard to believe she is in her nineties.

The last time I visited the outlet center would have been at some point in the 90’s and I can remember that I enjoyed it then. I am fascinated by trains, absolutely love them and I think this has a lot to do with why this place appeals so much. There are some great brands there and I did spend a lot on some new clothes. I did find some time to take some photos as we walked around.
The Outlet occupies what was the Great Western Railway Works, the project was carried out by Tarmac Construction, opened in 1997 and the site is owned by McArthurGlen.
