Coming to a status line near you

I like to think of myself as quite a good business networker - I have accounts on LinkedIN, Xing, and Ecademy, and I'm a social networker too - you can find me on Facebook. Up to now I have resisted the urge to join Twitter, the micro-blogging service, where you have just 140 characters to update your status. This was mainly because I wanted to avoid being mistaken for a Twit.
However, after some persuasive prodding, and in the spirit of new things for the new year, I have relented and you can now find me on Twitter as well. After all, what can a fellow do? I look forward to following, and being followed by, you all.

ISTC Fellowship

I am very pleased to announce that I have become a Fellow of the Institute for Scientific and Technical Communications (ISTC). The ISTC is the UK's national organisation for technical communications professionals and Fellow is the highest membership grade. I have been a member of the ISTC since 1999, and I am now one of the Tutors for the ISTC's open learning training courses in technical communications. I look forward to helping the ISTC grow and flourish in the future.
