So it’s been just over a month since the last blog entry. I had hoped to have a few more written updates on the site since then, but July has been a busy month, that included the ACSS conference in Macau, birthdays for both my wife and daughter, my daughter getting ready to start her very first day of school here in Hong Kong (a pre-K), and the general work related issues that pop up (as they are wont to do).
One might say that some things have been happening behind the scenes as it were. There have been some minor cosmetic changes to the site and there are currently two projects in development.
Project A (as an enigmatic working title for the moment) has already gone into production (or perhaps it is more appropriate to say co-production). That project should be available fairly soon and it will be announced on this site (and a multitude of other sites) once it goes live.
Project B (still going for the enigmatic) is a second project which is still in the pre-production phase, but I hope to roll out within the month of August. This second project I’ve been somewhat hesitant to do, as I believe my own capacity for creating it with a level of quality remains suspect, but I’ve been advised by some people that I have a deep respect for to just give it a go.
Perhaps there is a third project worth mention and that is Project D, with the notable ‘Ph’ placed in the front. Yes, after some inspiration by what I saw at the ACSS conference last month, and some extended discussions with my wife, work colleagues and some friends who are already engaged in various levels of top level academic study, I’ve decided to make an attempt at furthering my academic study. Though I’ve been working in tertiary education continuously since 2004, I’ve not been a student since finishing my MA degree in 2010. Getting accepted is certainly not guaranteed, but my hope is that I will be able to combine my passions into a passable thesis that will get me into the door and allow me to shake off some of the mental rust that has built up over the past few years.
