After a few years of bashing out long comments in response to articles (and other commenters) on various national newspapers and a multitude of posts on my ever growing number of  social networking sites, I finally decided to indulge myself and start a blog of my own. This will be my first ever digital diary, hopefully a step up from my previous effort of analogue recordings in my early teens.

My future ramblings will probably have much to do with science, the web, start-ups, education, The Apprentice and various other random interests synonymous with a 21st century Scottish postdoc. Edinburgh is a thriving city with loads going on (and not just in August) so I’ll try to keep up!
