- Monday 26: I missed The Independent Commission on Referendums: who, what, why and how – Edinburgh Seminar because the calendar appointment shifted in my calendar, probably because of the change to summer time.
- Tuesday 27: working on a report for Napier; Leith Harbour & Newhaven CC meeting
- Wednesday 28: Scottish Government Online Identity Assurance – Show and Tell, spinning. Watch this space for a blog about my reactions to this event.
- Thursday 29: more work on the Napier report; working on a newsletter for LHNCC
- Friday 30th: going to This House with my much better half
- Saturday 31: meeting up with friends in St Andrews (Facebook post); dinner with the prof, her husband and some of their friends
- Sunday 1: LHNCC minutes and website work
- As and when: more writing about the MIL-DEM project
- Monday 2: drafting a funding application – this took all day, instead of the planned 3 hours!
- Tuesday 3: can’t remember
- Wednesday 4: more work on the Napier report; meeting about plans for tram extension. My personal position is that if done well, this will be beneficial. Tram systems I’ve encountered in Europe have seemed to be good things. (So, for example, the proposed extension could reduce need for cars, could enable Leith’s huge population to reach Edinburgh’s city centre and beyond easily, and could enable Edinburgh’s tram system to be profitable.) But if done badly – and the evidence from building the current tram system suggests that this is likely – it will be an expensive, disruptive white elephant.
- Thursday 5: drafting another funding application, being interviewed for a PhD student’s research on use of social media
- Friday 6: more writing about the MIL-DEM project; meeting about Thursday’s funding application
- Saturday 7: more writing about the MIL-DEM project; new spreadsheets for the new financial year
- Sunday 8: redrafting will, Powers of Attorney and supplementary guidance to my attorneys; this blog piece; then will do more writing about the MIL-DEM project
I’m sure there was more – I don’t seem to have stopped this week. Next week’s presumed highlights include Holyrood Tweetup
