2009 has been an amazing year for me personally and professionally.
It has been a year that I have been reminded about the importance of listening (inspired by Vanilla Ice), the amazing resiliance and thirst for learning within research professions (inspired by the record numbers at this years AMSRS Conference and Summer/Winter schools) and I have seen real change in the way information is being communicated and shared (inspired by MC Hammer's performance at UTS Social Media Club http://bit.ly/4yncsA). I will write about my weird allegiances to 80's Rap artists in my new blog that I plan to launch later this month.
2009 has been tough however I have learnt alot, i have turned 40 in style with my family and friends and it has forced me to take control of my career.
