• Weeks 306-309

    25 November 2018

    Time is elided at the moment: I'm having a deliberately quiet period between projects and whilst lots of non-work life is all rather busy. So weeknotes are a bit more spread-out. But still worth doing.

    I've also started work on a new piece of personal process to perhaps make this – and a few other things – easier to manage. (Nothing magic: just using Trello to treat ‘myself’ as a project). We'll see how that works out.

    Sharphaw didn't end up happening – at least, not in the planned format. There might still be some work there in the future, but for now, that codename and work is on ice.

    I've been dealing with some metal suppliers from Germany and Poland, who are making prototype panels for 16n. It looks like the panels will be arriving in week 310, which is exciting for that project (and also to determine if my CAD work has come out correct).

    In week 309, I spent the afternoon at After The Flood, taking part in a quick workshop. Always good to work with the teams they put together, and I think we got to some useful places in it.

    I'm gearing up for the Digital Technologies module on the Hyper Island MA I'll be teaching on at the end of the year. Some of the work has needed minor touch-ups, although there's one talk that'll get more of a rewrite in week 310. I've also been securing final guests, and nailing down the project brief for the students.

    Longer-term plans are emerging, too. My time on Selworthy is winding down. I'm going to wrap up there by the end of the year. And I should really explain it properly, after 3.5 years! I'll write it up in depth soon, I hope. Great ride.

    And, in the meantime: dotted the _i_s on Highrigg: a part-time contract that'll kick off at the end of the year, and we'll see how we go from there. Meaty, a new set of challenges for me: exciting and scary at once. Sounds like a good thing to go into 2019 with.
