Speaking of which…
I am indeed going to be running Rewired State as a more full-time part of my life now, and we have some exciting work coming up and some cunning plans to pore over.
I do need to make sure that I can put a roof over my head and survive, can’t live on worthy projects alone! Therefore I have accepted a very generous offer by The Guardian for me to come in and do a little work for them whilst also running Rewired State from their offices. The Guardian have always been unstinting in their support of what we are doing in RS and I am massively grateful for this cuddle I am getting – it makes life far, far easier.
Over the next three months I will be taking some serious time to not only look at the future of RS, but to build on the developer network – with the help of a strong and committed ‘geek advisory board’ – that I have imagined but not yet actually invited! – who will be charged with making sure I don’t disappear down any bonkers avenues that just won’t work.
Thanks for all of your encouragement, please do keep spreading the word, we are still running our super fabulous hack days and we will be looking at curating some of the apps we have sitting in our Creations section. We are also going to be actively building the network and working with the young developers who have attended the past few years, similarly taking forward some of what they have made.
So, that’s me… for now
