Minor hurdle negotiated: PhD proposal drafted.

Right: what next?

(Meanwhile, English cities have witnessed student protests for quite a few days now – some of it has reached Scotland as well, although the legislation they’re agitating against doesn’t apply up here.  For now.  Rather like the Ushahidi example of collaborative data management, the students in London have been using Google Maps to plot developments as they try to outwit and outmanoeuvre the police.  More information here, while the map’s here.)
