Via e-lab’s Blogbuilder news blog comes an article from the Guardian’s Online section all about Warwick Blogs.
There’s no mention of us pioneers of course, not that I’m bitter. Did I mention we were here first? Nor did they mention Kieran or Rob, both of whom I know put a lot of work in to set up Warwick Blogs in the first place. Perhaps more embarrassingly, they refer to John as the “head of IT services at Warwick”, something which I suspect may not make Rosemary very happy.
Despite the omissions and the almost Warwick Boar-esqe inaccurancy in the text, the article seems quite balanced, if a little short. If anyone has a paper copy lying around that they want to send to me then please do, as apparently the presentation is a lot more impressive in print than online.
A sign from the gods that are Unitemps that Summer has well and truly arrived on campus.
I’m so glad I’m no longer working for them – even if the pay isn’t that bad 🙂
So it seems the whole leaving-my-keys-at-some-random’s-in-Birmingham debacle has an up side as well as a fairly major down side.
Specifically, getting onto campus half an hour early for work due to me having had to get the bus meant I got to spend twenty minutes chilling on the piazza while reading the Observer. Campus is a beautiful, tranquil place on sunny mornings and being (almost) the only person there to appreciate it made it seem all the better.
Random camera phone photos later. Honest.
