Sudden Free Paper Excitement!
Owen Powell - 29th April 2007
We've had an amazing response to our article in thelondonpaper, which came out on Wednesday 25th April. To everyone who has emailed so far, thanks so much for your comments and suggestions and offers. We're slightly overwhelmed by how many people want to meet up with us and tell us how they came to London, but keep an eye on your inboxes - we'll be contacting you within days to arrange a meeting. If we manage to see everyone who has shown an interest, I think we'll be up to somewhere in the 90s, which is getting on for half-way to the grand total! Given that the article came out the day after our six-month anniversary, that seems to be appropriate.
What's really nice is the way that many people are suggesting work colleagues, or neighbours, or even people they chat to on the bus - the excitement of being in a genuinely global city is palpable in lots of your messages, and it's inspired us again to get as close as we can to finishing. We think it can be done.
Please do keep reading the blog, we know that sometimes we get a bit behind, but bear with us - the next month in particular should see new stories going up almost daily. And do get in contact as well - the best way is by email on firstname.lastname@example.org, but you can also leave comments on any page of the blog itself. (We know we've got some already which we haven't replied to. We're doing our research and will post something soon ...)
Finally, and once again, a big big thank you to everyone who's contacted us. It's good to know that you all think it's a nice idea, and we're very much enjoying meeting all these amazing people. Still searching for that elusive Comorian, though ...
