And so we get to the end. Twelve weeks. Twenty three things. It has been a fun journey, much more than I expected. It was also much more work than I expected, but of course that is why I have also learned much more than I expected. I have found new uses to social media, […]Read more "Thing 23: Wrapping up"
Thing 21 is great, what a set of resources to find jobs and funding! I had no idea. They are brilliant.

I will go back to them at a later point, as I am sure they will come handy. Wikipedia […]Read more "Thing 9, Thing 10 and Thing 11"
For a while a friend has been bugging me that I need to update my LinkedIn profile with a summary and a more complete CV.
