Complex feelings about this but my initial reaction is that I’ve been to the Trafford Centre in the past six months and it never occurred to me I was being checked against a database of faces. https://t.co/glLrXhuW9Z

There were awful TERF flyers in the toilets at work. Did the only thing I could do, which was to take them all down and throw them in the bin.

So far @spaceappsexeter seems to be full of families. I’ve spotted a few single blokes in their twenties but they’re hiding in corners looking a little intimidated. Bizarre but refreshing for a Hackathon.

It seems like an obvious progression from the group of kids a teacher bought in 2013-through several of us bringing offspring with us in 2015 and 2016. But I’m still amazed how much it now looks like a family event!

We were Space Squid but the teenagers on the team vetoed it as a rubbish team name. We are now ICA (Interplanetary Cephalopod Assistant). #SpaceApps #SpaceAppsExeter pic.twitter.com/HZedKhMm1Z

However it seems our hashtag is to be #TeamSquid https://t.co/CU5otWfHyS

Two homeless deaths in the space of 24 hours in Manchester city centre. Not thought to be linked. It’s the regularity of it - to the point that if you’re not careful, it starts to look mundane - that shames the government https://t.co/DHwsvXTiTs
