Progress report

All going well, what was an idea rumbling in the back of my head for some time, and which I seriously started thinking about at the start of this month (and boring many of you with) will be a little closer to reality by the end of this week.

By Friday, I hope to have a video ready for a crowdfunding pitch, and a limited company set up (or at least, in the hands of the CRO for processing).

The budgets keep shifting, and I think I drastically underestimated how much overhead even a minimal operation can incur, but I feel a sense of progress (even if sometimes it feels like swimming in treacle.

So that’s where we are. No fireworks, no huge headlines, but progress nonetheless.

And as a parting thought, there’s this graph (courtesy of @AnMailleach) giving graphic form to the “Silly Season”, when newspapers find themselves scrabbling for stories because the Dáil has closed down.
