Open science

It’s tricky, as I discovered. There are as many meanings as there are people. I’ve been at the first day of Mozfest 2013. Mozfest was big, varied and fun! Coders, hackers, programmers, makers, shakers, the lot. They were all there. I…

The end is nigh…

With four days to go until my dissertation deadline, I thought I would spend some time blogging, rather than writing my dissertation. Maybe not the best idea, but at the moment graphs, numbers and quotes are giving me a headache…
