Now on Medium

I’ve just started an account on Medium.

Partly this was to prove a point to myself and anyone who might follow me on Twitter (see my first post for details) about using the right, um, medium 🙂 for what you want to say.

Partly though – I think part of the reason I haven’t written as much in the last couple of years as I could have is that this blog was started for longer-form technical or tech-related posts, and once I had less time and/or motivation for those, I didn’t really have an outlet that fit. For various reasons, I didn’t want to start writing in two places but hey – why not if it feels like it works?

So possibly I’ll write techy stuff here and more general bits and bats on Medium instead, possibly I won’t keep the division that clear, maybe I won’t actually get back into writing in a big way after all … we shall see.

Hello World

So yes, it’s been about six months since I last blogged.  I didn’t intend it that way but I’ve been pretty busy.

You probably don’t want to hear me bragging on about career stuff (that’s what LinkedIn is for, right?) but the short version is – promotion, leading on a major project using Hadoop, Linux and Python, blah blah blah 🙂

Things have eased up just a little now so I’m looking forward to putting some more technical stuff up on here shortly, possibly even this week.

Watch this space… (and also this one).
