Simon at Beach

The Science of Information. Also …


Well, I’m sat here trolling the job pages and loving my UJM tweeks. Must admit it’s a bit of a roller coaster with the weather as Summer comes to an end. It goes from beach worthy glorious sunshine to sultry humidity to grey and downright miserable as it is today !

I’m on my second listening of a great course.

The Science of Information: From Language to Black Holes

I can’t say I understand half of the maths involved but it’s certainly mind expanding and inspiring me to keep pushing the limits of my knowledge. The course covers a lot of ground to say the least and I’m not even going to try to start to describe it. Go have a look 🙂

Meanwhile I’m still available for any WordPress/ Web Development roles that might be about.

Following on from my post regarding design skills, I found another fantastic book for getting into design mode,  I’d highly recommend it. It’s called ‘Basics of Design, layout and typography‘ by Lisa Graham.

As you can see, I’ve also been enjoying the beach weather so it’s no all bad.Indeed I’m surprised to see so many visitors to the New Forest area this year. It’s strange to see Wilverly Plain car park full up, I’ve lived in New Milton for almost 20 years now and the only other time I’ve seen it full was once when a bunch of running clubs held a massive race event there. ( strange really, you’d think some of them would be able to run from one of the other car parks !)

I’m hoping for a few more beach days next week and then going to get even more /serious/ about job hunting! I’m constantly discovering new Digital agencies in the local area, it’s amazing how vibrant the digital industry has become around the South coast, but it seems that getting the required toe in the door experience is remaining a challenge for me.

I guess the cool thing about Web development is that you could in theory work from the beach. The picture above could literally be me finishing my day at the office 🙂
