@bronsa I might even come up to london for that!
what I mean is, If I am already coming to london on a nearby date I might slightly amend my plans so that I can do that also, up to a maximum of 1 day either side
Watching downton abbey, I was struck by how they said they went 'up to London', even though there were based in Yorkshire which is north of London. I think it was posh to say 'going up to London' regardless of your geographical location, because you are ascending from your common dwelling up to the capital.
Yep, that was totally it, “up to London” or “up to Town”. It was the same for “going up to University” regardless of your actual direction of travel.
we need a matrix of location to location and whether people say going up to or down to
In my neck of the woods (Lancashire), it seems more usual to speak of going ‘down’ to London, but I suppose that the association of North with ‘up’ is somewhat arbitrary.
when I lived in Hants we would go 'up to London' and my assumption always was that this was due to the fact that it was north of us.
maybe they accidentally said 'up to London' as Downton Abbey was filmed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highclere_Castle
they didn't say it accidentally - it was definitely a repetitive thing, unless they were trying to create a parallel universe where Yorkshire was south of London
Yeah, you are dead right ^^ @jonpither - they said it all the time because it was the vernacular of the time.
@glenjamin - Oh yeah, me too, but I’m not an inter-war landed gent 😉
(if I were I would not be allowed to wear hoodies and that would be simply intolerable)
I think for some people it depends more on relative perceived status than on geographical notions of up and down.
i.e. if you think that London is the bees knees then it is ‘up’, if you think it a putrid festering accretion of ‘hoi poloi’ and ‘nouveau riche’ then it is ‘down’
Please can we avoid swearing or other offensive language in this channel.
thanks for the apology and the edit 🙂 ( sophisticated euphemisms are acceptable in small doses)
@bronsa The next London Clojurians talk evening is the 3rd October. We are looking for speakers for any length of talk, from 5 minutes to a maximum of 2 hours
You can use the https://bit.ly/ldnclj-speak form to submit an idea, chat to me directly here on slack or on this channel
No problem. I'll need a Title and Abstract (or at least a good draft of these, I can help tweak them if needed). You can also include a bio - info about yourself you wish to share (who you are, clojure where you work, social media if you want people to reach out to you, etc)
Speaking at the meetup is a great way to practice a talk for the ClojureX conference on 4th-5th December https://skillsmatter.com/conferences/8783-clojure-exchange-2017
We should be announcing more speakers for the ClojureX conference over the coming weeks. If you still haven't submitted a talk then contact me directly with your ideas, we have a couple of talks & lightning talk spaces left to fill
how long are the lightning sessions?
