Notice how, shamefully, a few of these items have carried over from my last major to-do list.

Sounds like a lot.

Remember to prioritize, and find some time for yourself and friends, also.

My best Turkey photos are now on Photo.net. I am a bit disappointed with them, really. They are a decent enough travel set, but they have no real artistic merit.

I finally finished: Bromley, Daniel and Jouni Paavola. Economics, Ethics, and Environmental Policy: Contested Choices. Blackwell Publishers; Oxford. 2002.

Now, I mean to finish the Dobson book and then move into twinned reading on Philosophy of Science and the specifics of the case studies.

On the job front:

Emily (who used to work on hiring at Goldman Sachs) is helping me improve my CV.

I pushed it from version 2.0 to version 2.5 tonight, with a shiny new version to emerge in the next couple of days.

Update: Version 3 is now ready.

I wrote about 1000 words of a draft introduction for the thesis while sitting in the very back corner of the Cornmarket Starbucks today.

I revamped the WordPress theme a bit, creating a new one called Bridge so that I can easily go back to Serenity. So far, there is a new banner and a few colour changes. I may well tinker with it further.
