Let’s start again!

Hello and welcome to my site.

This is the third reboot of my blog and photo gallery over the years. I started with website design whilst at university and this carried on into my teaching career. When I left teaching I continued working on my websites and eventually found myself running a profitable blog called originalarchive at the same time as working a full time job. That was an exciting time to write about technology – reviews and opinions about what the future might hold – and it allowed me to get close to some fantastic technology based kinetic art over the years too. An odd connection, but to those who know me unsurprising because I like to explore so many different interests.

Though originalarchive has been permanently archived now I am looking forward to revisiting some of my past articles here at the same time as I continue to explore what the future will deliver. The change since I last wrote is in my own ability to self evaluate and reflect on my performance and outlook on life. It will be interesting to see what impact that has on my writing and my thoughts. So there is a good chance that I will include more of my thoughts about how coaching, peer review and non-technical skills can be used to develop our ability to be reflective.

My welcome note in the past has talked about the hope that my articles can promote thought, discussion and help challenge traditional ideas. I don’t know that I was especially successfully in the past but surely that’s what second and third chances are for!

Thanks for visiting,
