The third /dev/fort

After a fog-bound England gave those of us flying a worryingly slow start, the cohort finally all convened at Glasgow International and set off in an over-sized coach (containing 13 people, seating more like 80) only three hours late. Our destination? Saddell, in the Kintyre Peninsula of Scotland.

We occupied Saddell House from the 9th to the 16th of November 2009. If anything, this felt more remote and isolated than Fort Clonque did in the first /dev/fort.

There, amidst constant rallying cries of “Awesome!” and some genuine (and some ironic) high-fives, we planned and built most of a website.

The site

In what is becoming a predictable lament, the site wasn’t finished during the week. The basic functionality was complete, but many of the little details that will add polish, including an updated visual treatment, are yet to be rolled in.

We hope to achieve an invitation-only alpha phase before the summer.
