About this blog

me-three-840-496Hi, I’m Terry Madeley, and I enjoy reading about art and design, culture, data, education, technology and the web. I’m confused by a lot of it, to be honest. This blog is a record of some of what I find. It’s a little random sometimes, but that’s ok.

Just think of this as a smaller and less efficient version of my Pinboard site. That’s where I first save links to things I’ve read, after going through each day’s e-mail newsletters and so on. I’ll then select a few to post here, at some later point.

A little about me

me-and-my-phoneI graduated with an Interactive Arts degree in the 90s and since the obligatory, though brief, stint as a web designer, I’ve worked reasonably happily with a range of student record systems across a number of universities, colleges and schools, leading teams and developing processes. You can find out more about all that on LinkedIn.

I am being what I would seem to be

“I quite agree with you,” said the Duchess; “and the moral of that is—‘Be what you would seem to be’—or, if you’d like it put more simply—‘Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.’”
