Meeting the Barnsborough 'inhabitants' face-to-face and then in the virtual world now makes me think that I need to write a multi-voiced account of this work. Perhaps from the point of view of planner, avatar and researcher. I haven't resolved this yet but it really does seem to be the most appropriate way of representing the layers of meaning. Anyway one thing is quite clear, and that's the way the youngsters think that the world is mint or even mintus (which seems to be a superlative form of the word). I'm not sure of the currency of 'mint' - unintentional pun - but it looks as if it could be restricted to the North of England.
