Qualification in Podcasting → dougmuses | Sun Jun 29 05:55:02 +0100 2008 Working away for a week has meant that I almost missed the bit in the Guardian about a qualification in Podcasting !

Reflections on a busy year → mimanifesto | Sat Jun 28 22:37:31 +0100 2008 It’s certainly been an eventful year for me.
