It took me a long while to come up with a name for this blog, but drifting is key – my writing drifts through a topic and I am adrift…drifting is the nature of surfing the web, from one tangent to another.

the ‘drift’ – conceived of as a transit of the urban environment for noncommercially bound reasons

Will Self, article on the Barbican’s Urban Wandering season. Maybe I’ll curate my own class on P2PU.

I’ve been blogging here under cover since June 2013 – went public in November 2013, still some pages to tidy up, but hey! a website is never finished. I curate rather than create, perhaps a form of virtual dérive, although that’s something I’m planning to change. Summed up nicely in a quotes within quotes piece from Damion Searls:

The things you think of to link are not in your own control. It’s just who you are, bumping into the world. But how you link them is what shows the nature of your mind.

See my about.me page for who I am and what I do.

PS As it happens, the common usage of drift på dansk is rather different from aimless wandering – it applies to the running of an operation, company, or railway (cf jernbanedrift).
