I don’t need an excuse for it being over a month since I last posted on this blog; it has happened before for no particular reason. Assuming anyone’s still out there, though (I think RSS means that the danger of losing eyeballs is less than it used to be, as there’s no timewasting associated with keeping up with a silent blogger), here goes.

A couple of days after my last post, the one about the Cyber Civil Rights symposium, my body had a speed-dating experience with hard tarmacadam. Or to be more direct, I was cycling from the university to my house, and was involved in a (thankfully minor) accident (mostly the fault of a thoughtless driver), meaning I sustained a little fracture in my right elbow, and was unable to write/type with the arm of which it is an integral part until quite recently. As I said, oops. Things are relatively back to normal now, though it will be a while longer before I’m cycling again. (It did give me the opportunity to get a good chance to test voice recognition on the Mac – it’s pretty good, and I might well use it to give myself a break from typing in the future).

Right now, and for the next while, I hope to be engrossed in thesis completion (it’s somewhere between the monkey on my back and the elephant in the room) and the various markings and meetings that dominate ‘exam season’. Therefore, I’m still going to be keeping this as a fairly low-traffic place, but hope you can stay subscribed (if you are) as I get things going again. I do have two posts coming up: one about postgraduate opportunities at UEA and one about my own experimentation with Twitter. Watch out for them…
