  • Being more human at work

    If the process insists that humans act more like machines/robots/spreadsheets than real human beings, challenge that process.

  • Moving on

    After two and half years, this is my last week at Torchbox. An announcement tinged with both sadness and excitement.

    Sadness because during my time here I’ve had the opportunity to work with an incredibly smart and committed team of people, on very cool projects for organisations as diverse as Greenpeace UK, The Joseph Rowntree Foundation, and Coeliac UK.

    Excitement because of what the future holds.

    I’m very proud to announce that from the 7th of March I will be joining the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society as their Head of Online, or as I’m personally going to refer to it, “Chief Geek”.

    Grandiose title aside, I’m going to be delving into everything they do online. Their public web presence, educational outreach, social media involvement, research tools, and a whole lot of other things I’m forgetting right now. In short, I have been tasked with turning the WDCS into the exemplar 21st century, web-native, conservation organisation.

    It’s going to be one hell of a challenge, but I cannot wait to get stuck in.


  • A novel use for bulldog clips

    This is too damn clever. I know what I’m doing when I get into the office tomorrow.

  • Wait for it…

    Members of Torchbox amuse ourselves at the station whilst taking part in World Car Free Day.

    (the irony of not being able to drive and therefore celebrating this day every day is not lost on me)

  • This is why brains race

    I keep the subject constantly before me and wait ‘till the first dawnings open slowly, by little and little, into a full and clear light.
