You can read about some of the work that my co-op is doing with Julie's Bicycle here:
If you're not sure whether to apply, then just do it anyway! It takes about a minute, and what's the worst that could happen?
I'm on the other side of the initial application process, so either you get not-very-harshly rejected by me, or you get to have a lovely virtual chat over a cup of tea.
Some might see that as win-win. Others might not 😅
We've already found some interesting candidates for this role with Julie's Bicycle. Could this be something interesting to you or someone you know? It's super-easy to apply! https://apply.workable.com/julies-bicycle/j/984AF66A8C/
#podcast I’m usually the one doing the interviewing, but this week was my first time being a guest on a podcast. Kind of a niche one, for fans of the band Status Quo. Here’s a link: https://anchor.fm/quocast/episodes/A-Chat-with-Wayne-e176dve
Delighted to be presenting my doctoral research at the OE Global 2020 Conference this afternoon. Here is the slide deck I'll be using: https://www.slideshare.net/wgibbons/designing-and-implementing-digital-open-badges-for-success
Even though it’s been “official” since March, it finally feels “real” now that I’ve gotten my hands the cert (delayed a few months due to you-know-what). No pomp, ceremony, or fancy gown. Just a parchment in the post. This is what #graduation photos look like these days, I guess!
There’s not much out there giving voice to civil engineers, so it has been great to catch up with some graduates so that they can tell their story.
For everyone who knew @daibarnes and would like to mark his untimely passing, we're planning a memorial episode of the TIDE podcast.

@dajbelshaw Have you come across an app called “Stoop”? Just heard about it today. It’s a newsletter reading app. Looking forward to digesting Thought Shrapnel on it tomorrow morning.
Budget day today. Looks like carbon tax increases have been scrapped. What a shameful situation, coming just 1 day after the IPCC said carbon taxes are the most pragmatic way to address climate change. Government buying votes because they're afraid of the diesel driver revolt. Disgraceful. When we had such great success politically recently (same sex marriage and repealed abortion laws), this is a backwards step for our wee country.
