Some comments on the new site


Rather than updating a tired old site through HTML and uploading by FTP, the impetus to make things more dynamic and to update more frequently comes from the imminent migration to the US – moving to Pittsburgh in August – so it was about time to edit an existing blog that I maintained for ‘GeoTheory’ postgrad reading group at Exeter and repurpose it. There will be echoes of that group, some material posted that I want to keep although might seem incongruous. I’ll miss the group, the regular readings and discussions, but my research is mutating a great deal. And my teaching is going to change radically.

So, with the updated website, a new mantra: to update one’s thoughts and blogposts more frequently. Also pages will disappear, new ones will be added to better reflect the research. Media appearances and writing from the past few years will be added in the next few weeks to bring everything more up to date. In the meantime: browse and enjoy.

    I really like the new Blog Mark. I hope you & family are settling down over there now but don’t forget your fans in the UK. 🙂

    Hey Dean, good to hear from you! You are not forgotten. There are some amazing roboticists at Carnegie-Mellon and the house we’re renting currently is owned by a Prof there – there are robot posters and robot toys everywhere. You’d love it!
