I am ‘reactivating’ this blog mainly because I’ve started using Twitter and can see it’ll be useful to have a place to post stuff that requires more than 140 characters to express. Also because I found myself being quoted off Twitter in other publications, which I can see might have ramifications.
I’ll chuck a persistent copy of this post in the ‘About’ page, but if you’re reading this I guess I should give a few more words of explanation:
I’m not a particularly committed blogger. For example, my Posts dashboard is full of year-old unpublished Drafts and I’m still trying to find the time to move the rest of the old ID card posts I did back in 2004 – which led to me becoming involved in No2ID – from a crappy HTML archive file into WordPress. (It’s not the HTML bit that’s so hard, it’s checking and tracking down links. In some ways this internet of ours has a very short memory…)
By default I talk/blog/tweet/post in my own capacity. If I’m speaking on behalf of any of the organisations I run/work for/work with/advise, I will say so – so please don’t quote me as “Phil Booth from XYZ” unless I have explicitly confirmed I am speaking in that capacity. Thank you.
(If you would like to find out about at least some of those organisations, I maintain a public resume on LinkedIn.)
Oh, and if you’d like to read my first ever post on ID cards, it’s here: Getting my goat. I still haven’t got all of them up but the ones that are now posted are in chronological order with most of the links working.
