How time flies when you are having fun . . . researching . . . writing . . . meeting excellent people and working on issues of importance. It’s been two years since I arrived as a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow at the OII. I’ve had the chance to work with brilliant graduate students, stellar colleagues and a host of inspiring visitors. Some particular highlights have been working on Net Neutrality issues with Ian Brown and Alissa Cooper, and the policy forum on child protection and freedom of expression with Vicki Nash and Michael Hills.
Now it’s time to go on down the road: starting Wednesday next week I’ll be LSE Fellow in Media and Communications at the London School of Economics. I’m very happy to be close enough not only to cycle to work, but also to continue some of the great collaborations with OII folks, including the “Missing Data in Qualitative Research” project that I’ve been working on with Bill Dutton, and editorial work for the Policy & Internet journal.
So, yeah, farewell OII . . . but I suspect I’ll be seeing you soon. Come on down the road and visit!
Congratulations on the new role & thanks for all your input into the MSc Course this year too – your sharing of practice was invaluable for exploration of qualitative research.
All the best for future projects
Thanks Tim and congratulations on finishing your dissertation! My new role includes teaching on the MSc methods course, so I can keep telling my stories from the field. Hope to see you out and about in the open-data world.
