#Checkin welcomes you to Wed July 1st!
Despite Covid-19, this corner of the internets, diaspora* style
, sticks with tradition: Here’s where you can continue a topic from yesterday, send a wave, give a brief update or take part in the daily thread (or pick one of the older if you're so inclined). You’re welcome to say hi anytime, or just wave or have a cup while you run / swim / fly by, #newhere
Take it as a early morning / afternoon / or late night opportunity, whatever your timezone brings with it. Same procedure, checkin! Welcome! As always, any topic that is on your mind is fine, as we manage very well to spark conversations on many a wondrous issue. Me, I woke up today 6am and have had an earworm stuck in my head since: Ça plane pour moi, of which many many cover versions exist. Which one is yours? (Any song.) Which one is even better than the original?
Any meeting of all of us IRL is unlikely, not only given the current pandemic - we're distributed across many different continents most of the time, and the travel distances involved are far from trivial. But, as close as it may get, I have good news here: the actual checkin cafe and bar exists!
! Discovered that the other day - it is an actual bar venue that opens on demand, caters for mid-sized conventions and carries this very name. It is housed in a repurposed old brewery site
from the middle of the 1800s turn near where I live, now a cultural centre. An old European site built in red brick, if you ask me. So, should that meetup IRL ever happen, you'd all be invited to come to the checkin bar. Going there we could
plot for world domination! Or just have a chat about music and cover versions.

Once I enjoyed an excellent artisan coffee in the place pictured. Heartfelt thanks to @Dave Sutton for creating the 3D Pluspora CheckIn GIF, and for the use of it. ❤️
