I went to university in the late 1990's and this means that I will forever hold a thrillingly bad punk pop cover version close to my heart. I was listening to some of these whilst doing some DIY the other day and thought I would make a list of my top ten.
As part of a minor org shuffle this week I will no longer be working directly with Benjy. Benjy isnt a showy man, so wouldn't want a fuss, but he is a brilliant writer and his blog is one we should all keep an eye on. With this in mind, I thought it would be appropriate to write a quick post about what Benjy has taught me in our time working together. It puts me in mind that the recording of our shared history is something that is easy to forget to do in the evolution of a team .
Location – Live in Cardiff and work in Newport
Current role – Chief Publishing Officer for the Office of National Statistics
Current mobile device – Blloc for home, iphone for work
Current computer (work and home) Dell for work (it is very decent) and the classic sticker covered pixelbook for home (Pictured. It is the best device I have ever owned)
One word that best describes how you work – Hopeful
So, one year ago I wrote a post about sharing some, well, open thinking about how I wanted to do some open working and create some open data. This post contains some thoughts on a few things I have noticed whilst actually doing it in the form of developing and launching a public beta of some new functionality on the ONS web site.
Things I learnt about me and my world this week
0 - I referred to the team as ‘guys' in a large meeting and have felt bad all week. Publishing as a rebuke to myself.
1 - When stuff goes really really wrong it is hard to stay calm.
Week notes! Get your week notes.
So, this is very unlikely to be a thing, but I have had an unusually logistically smooth week and am on a slow moving train so have given it a go. I've checked out how this is meant to go. Gifs, ‘i went to a meeting’, reflection and humour leads to riches and unicorns.
