    Received a post earlier today about receiving feedback from people who you work with on projects. Typically people only make time to give you feedback when it is that review time of year, getting feedback during the year is often a challenge and also the feedback is rarely reflective of what they should be saying.

  • So much to keep learning…

    One thing I love about being involved in the technology sector is just how much you continue to learn every day, in fact more than anyone can keep pace with. I have several feeds setup in Google Reader which I follow and try to ensure a good hour a day is spent reading through them, I come across so many things which mean keeping abreast of what is going on is challenging but fun!

  • Litter Bugs

    Yesterday I was out on the bike cycling around the back rounds here and crossing some of the main ones where necessary. Often go out but yesterday I noticed just how much litter was on the side of the road in the hedges, it was cans, plastic bottles, the odd carrier bag with rubbish.

    I just find it incredible that people do that, they are just so lazy and have not pride about their surroundings and environment. It doesn’t take any effort to take the rubbish home or the nearest bin, but instead some of these people just throw things out of the car window.
