Personal notices, open practices

Today is my penul­ti­mate day in my cur­rent job; next week I’m going on a trip to Spain, and when I get back I’m start­ing my new job at the award-win­ning Pre­loaded agency.

I’ve updat­ed my Speak­ing page to include more con­fer­ences, more videos, and a lit­tle on my speak­ing require­ments and pref­er­ences. I’m plan­ning to cut down on the num­ber of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to inter­est­ing offers and oppor­tu­ni­ties, so please get in touch if you’re organ­is­ing an event.
