In fact all three of them are a bit frazzled from 'the bonkers time' they've been having with their new venture, Swarm – which grew out of Good For Nothing. They say Swarm is not a busyness. But as they (along with pretty much everyone else – at least in London) seem to be so busy, asking the difference between what they're doing and traditional 'busyness' seems an obvious question.
