Mecca Coffee. Shop 2, 118 Devonshire St, Surry Hills. Tiny hole in the wall, punching well above its weight for the quality of coffee, and the range of samples of single origin coffees that are on offer. Coffee is ground to order, and expertly made. Whether you’re after a top-notch decaf latte, or the full […]
Campos Coffee. Shop 5, 827 George St, Ultimo 2007 [in the Devonshire tunnel]. I was excited to see this place being built as I was walking through the tunnel. There was a sense of wanting to get everything right before the grand opening. Here you see them almost ready to launch. After a week’s soft […]

Just what is all of this Internet use doing to our brains? (Includes some follow-up on Kony 2012).
An article from smashing magazine about doodling reminded me of how much my own thinking is limited at times from having a laptop as my main way of taking notes. Sometimes I wonder if there are advantages to some kind of hybrid moleskin / laptop approach.
Being unwell for most of this weekend marked a slight change in my normal reading routine. Instead of reading some more reformation church history for my current college subject, I started reading Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark (prior to this weekend, I’d only heard the latter as a musical). I can put this down […]
