Getting started at the Indieweb Camp Oxford in the "new" Westgate library (which is a nice facade on the 1970s building - sort of a React frontend on a old PHP App)

Checked into Westgate

Just starting the day at IWC Oxford!

... apparently some of the debris from the demolition of the stacks took out the local substation taking out power for thousands of homes. Given the last time they tried to demolish this thing a bunch of workers got tragically killed, a few hours without power is definitely an improvement.
