A quick post to you let you all know I’m leaving the data.gov.uk project, for a couple of months at least.
It’s been really interesting and eye opening work with a great team for the last year. Currently, there are some exciting changes happening internally that I feel need to finish happening before I can continue with my work there, to ensure that the external engagement work I do is on target, and giving the best value for money considering these times of government austerity.
As such, I’ve given notice to the team, and my last day will be on the 11th January 2011. If I’m currently working on anything with you regards the datagovuk project, it will be tied up and handed over appropriately, and you’ll be put in touch with the right person.
Thanks to everyone who has made my time at datagovuk so brilliant, in particular, Richard Stirling, Andrew Stott, James Forrester, Paul Jenkins, Evan King, Jeni Tennison, John Sheridan & Sean Burlington.
So what’s next?
I’m starting some work with Talis in January, which is very exciting. More to come when I know what I’m allowed to say, but as you can imagine it is still in the data field and working with some extremely talented folks.
I’m continuing my work with W+K, helping Nokia to increase its dialogue with app developers through events.
.. and I may soon have some very exciting news about a project doing something really rather amazing for children, based in London. I hope to be able to talk about that very soon.
