Thanks for dropping by my blog; if you’ve visited this page before you’re right – I have edited it! As you’ll see if you go right to the beginning, I kicked this blog off in February 2008 with a post about T-Mobile’s ‘Web-n-Walk’ service. Taking a look back now one thing is for sure – I’ve got more verbose in the last two years! There have been some longish lapses in service, but I try to keep coming back to the blog with my latest rant, homily or considered opinion – you pick what to call the posts!
A few things about me – I’m an IT professional based in Sheffield, where I work part time for a local engineering consultancy and freelance the rest of the time. There’s a little more information to be found about me on Facebook for my friends, and I also run a Twitter account.
The best way to learn more about me is to read around the blog or contact me and ask! If you want to approach me about my carrying out any work for you, take a look here.
Why the Penguin?
I take a lousy photo – I eventually chose to use various pictures of Opus the Penguin wherever I need an avatar or image. As to why Opus, I was always a fan of this particular flightless seabird and admired his various valuable contributions to philosophy, such as the ‘Dandielion Break’.
Blog Editorial Policy
I’m not sure I have an editorial policy for this blog. One of my inspirations in terms of writing was George Orwell, particularly his essays and non-fiction. He also wrote a regular column for Tribune magazine, called ‘As I Please’, which was a combination of political articles, articles about DiY, his writing life, etc. In other words, he wrote about whatever floated his boat at the time. And that’s exactly what I do here.
Does the Blog Make Money
Nope. I don’t take adverts, and anything I may recommend in passing on here I recommend because I genuinely like it, use it or support it – not because I’m receiving a wheelbarrow of money! However, should anyone wish to corrupt the editorial policy of this blog, I’m all ears!
