PhD ideas: 25 November 2010

It’s a while since I posted an updated ‘ideas’ file, but there have been distractions since August. There may not even be anything particularly new here, although the file itself remains an important repository for ideas, notes, references and supporting arguments. It has been used pretty extensively in the preparation of my postponed presentation, pending a preferable paucity of precipitation. Attention has been shifting to the more formal requirements of the university’s PhD application process. I’m realising over time that by starting my work from an industry perspective I’ve now got to bend those ideas towards the theoretical discussions which will underpin the work. (This is where the presentation would have been very useful I suspect, which is reason enough to try and get something put in its place over the next week.)

Meanwhile, behold the latest iteration of My Ideas.
