Both socially and workwise.
Socially I was at a Christening on Sunday (yay Max!), an 18th on Wednesday (Yay Jenna!) and will be at an engagement party tonight (yay Edwin and Harriet!) - makes me worry whether I will get a wedding and a funeral next week...
Obviously there has been the Unconference, and there was the news about Eduserv funding, I went to a great seminar yesterday about possible mechanisms supporting intelligence, and spent a chunk of time doing SSE Conference organisation. I also got round to joining the BCS and have been investigating the way they deal with competencies/topic maps/open learner models (call them what you will) which is work, training, professional development and PhD related all in one go. It will take a while to actually go through and map out what I do, and how well, and even longer to try to do the same thing for my goals.
I have spent most of today getting the Mac to behave itself, and copying files across from the old Windows box. I think I am just about there, but I still have to install some programming environments (apart from the fact it seems to have come with Ruby and subversion installed, which is nice :-))
Also ran into Nick from Business school today. Had been to a seminar by LS about using ontologies to describe learner competencies.
Ah yes, also started reading Groundswell (Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff) this week (after skimming bits of it last week) which is a good book.
Not quite sure what I am planning to write for my SSE Conference paper. I keep having ideas about which strand of research to explore, but havven't yet reached a decision. And I have the new book chapter to start getting in order with the same deadline. Now, I wonder if anyone can guess what I am likely to end up doing...
