Welcome to my newly re-launched blog.
Due largely to Twitter fulfilling my small message and social update needs, I have found myself blogging less and my blog losing focus.
From what I can see, this is not an uncommon phenomenon. Who else finds themselves tweeting more and blogging less ?
I decided to remove all the old posts and completely re-launch and change the scope of my blog so that it will be my voice for long term projects only. For short messages and social updates, I will continue to use Twitter.
Currently I am working on the following:
- Moving to America: Liz and I are in the late stages of moving to America (Portland, Oregon to be specific). I will document the process and the lessons learned, as I found this sort of information hard to come by, especially regarding the E3 visa. I did find some support and information though, which I will link to.
- Project Governance: I will talk here about why it needs to be done and how to do it well. I will also discuss various tools to help improve the odds of project success and how to detect challenged projects early.
- Coffee Geekery: I will document my coffee roasting experiments, bean/blend mixes and tasting notes. Also my experiences navigating a new coffee market when I arrive in Portland.
- Creative Writing: Liz and I are writing together more this year, and as part of this I will post some snippets and short stories.
Of course, over time my active projects will change, and like a good project manager, I will initiate and close each of them.
