Never a Southerner.

After a decade working (lately) as a Research Fellow at the University of Manchester, I’m mostly moving on (and South, to Cambridge).

It’s been a pleasure to work on large scale social science Government data (under license, contract and restriction) and research methods projects, but now it’s time for something else.

While it is extremely rare that I talk online about my role there, there a clear parallel between some discussions with Dear and Valued Colleagues, and the positions that Bill, Ben, other Ben and others take on the digital age of open data.

For now, I’ll be taking a couple of months break (I hope), working on some fun things, and we’ll see what’s next.
