    A quick update on what I’m up to… Term finished a couple of weeks ago and the world of…

  3. Five things you don’t know about me

    Matt Webb prompted me to write about five things most people don’t know about me.

  4. Not available now, but in future…

    I’ve found work for now, but here’s what my availability’s going to be like until next summer.

  5. Phil for hire, now

    At the time of writing, due to a large corporation endlessly faffing, I’m free for work until college starts.

  6. Work in 2006

    For a bit of balance, forgetting the acting, here’s how I’ve been spending my work time this year so far.

    I’ve been ill.

  9. Back online already

    A BT engineer mysteriously appeared only hours after I complained about how it would take them a week to come round.

  15. Vote for me and Jamie Oliver!, which I built with Poke, is up for a Webby award. So go and vote for it!

  16. HTML wot I wrote

    I spent a lot of time doing the HTML/CSS templates for a new version of Wood Mackenzie’s site (although you’ve, justifiably, probably never heard of them).

  17. Flickr article for BBC News

    I wrote an article about Flickr for BBC News Online last week, and it reminded me how different writing professionally is to all this personal publishing stuff.

  24. Big head

    Those cheeky chappies at Poke stuck my big face to a wall.

  25. Dabbling

    Last summer I tried my hand at painting, after nine years of doing none. It went OK, and I did three paintings I was quite pleased with, but damn, it’s hard work.
