This site began mostly because I like bulletin boards, and I
decided that I wanted one of my own !
It has grown rapidly in scale once I decided to create it. When
I look at it now, perhaps I should have 4 different sites, but
that is not feasible at the moment, One site will have to take
all the parts, even if they don't fit together properly, and they
may not be very polished in presentation or content .... I will
try it now and see what happens.
Anyway, to continue my story, because I'm looking for a good
project to work on, (and/or I need a job soon), I decided to put
my CV on the site.
Over the years, I also have some bright ideas for services that
I'd like to try out, so they are here too.
Then, as part of my studies, I will be doing an analysis of UK
food policy, so I decided to try and define the historical and
'influences' contexts for the 'policy space'. This naturally falls
into web pages, so I have added this too.
Finally, somewhat late in life, I am getting interested in what
academics are doing, and I find some of their ideas very interesting,
especially textual analysis, international relations theory, and
the works of Foucault.. So, I decided to try and communicate what
this is sparking off for me, so I have added these sections to
the site too !
And then, I thought I'd add some photographs as a bit of light
relief. (and my directory of links too of my favourite sites -
maybe once a month I try to find something new on the internet)
If anyone is interested, I have written more about the site:-
- Some site 'philosophy'
- My motives and methods
- Some guidelines for users
- Details of site history and
- Acknowledgements and suppliers
Special thanks to Allan Howard for originating the 'snapshot
and link' techniques that I use in the food section. http://db.uia.org/data/allan/ngosecurity_files/frame.htm
