Well, I got a new job. So that is pretty exciting. I will be working on the digital production system for an education content company. I must say, it feels really good to be out of adtech.
In preparation for the job transition I have not had a lot of time to sit down for some serious writing. I have a number of pieces in the pipeline, and have some other projects I have been working on. Hopefully all will see the light of day soon. Also, I am off for summer holidays to the Sunshine Coast. In fact, I am on the Greyhound right now. In the meantime, check out some of these short pieces from August.
