Weeknotes S2Ep10

Season two finalé! That’s right. It’s over already. Overarching feeling of the week Well, I feel like there should be some big bang moment here what with it being the season finalé but in reality it was a fine week. Just fine. Pretty normal.

I’ve been feeling a bit isolated at work [1]. And I’m knackering myself on tasks which I don’t think are very high value. I need some…

TedX Whitehall Women

Trying a live blog… Claire Eadington @Marathonshine: crossing bridges and not listening to our own trolls. “You have the resources, you have the skills, you have the gumption” Dan Susman @DanSoos: what has the European Convention of Human Rights ever done for us? How can a film produce the opposite effect of its intention? Will an…
