Each week we'll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.

And remember, if you're involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

Things of Note

One for the @DoESLiverpool #weeknotes audience – our own JR, photographing a half a million year old wooden “structure” (shelter? walkway? prehistoric park bench?) to get a 3D model for analysis. From: @fra...@mastodon.social https://mastodon.social/@frabcus/111099881584948717

@fra...@mastodon.social @DoESLiverpool my mind is just boggling at how old that thing is. The oldest pyramids in Egypt are what, 5000 years old? To get to the day that wooden structure was made, you’d have to go back _another_ 5000 years, and another, and another… again and again, almost a hundred times over! And a human made it 😯 and it still exists!? 🤯 #weeknotes

Attached: 1 image Last night was a Zero-Car City special of Ignite Liverpool. We had a bunch of excellent talks (as ever). I compered the evening, and also took a little timelapse of some of the second half (featuring me, @defne...@mastodonapp.uk and @Sty...@does.social, plus #PelotonLiv) #timelapse #IgniteLiv #Liverpool #CarFree #BikeTooter #cycling #weeknotes

Attached: 1 image What is this fever dream… @amc...@mastodon.me.uk @defne...@mastodonapp.uk and Kirsty bringing #igniteliv to a close with impromptu Queen karaoke!? #weeknotes @DoESLiverpool
