"It’s probably too early right now to wave goodbye to this weird site that started out as a way to monetise the tumblelog style started by other people, something that was maybe a tiiiiny bit skeevy but hey not everyone’s a coder.

But, for those who still watch what the internet does, this is probably the flag for Tumblr’s last lap"

My name is Noel and I'm a developer/entrepreneur based in Barcelona, Spain.

I was within the "silicon valley hamster wheel" mentality for a while but I've realized it's not what I want to do with my life, so I am now working and looking for opportunities that are more sustainable and focus on what I'm passionate about: Open Source, Privacy, etc.

You can find more about me in my website and keep up with what I'm doing on my "now" page: noeldemartin.com

Hi everyone. I'm Emma and am based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. After a decade working in various roles within higher education, I've recently broken free and re-trained as a coach. I'm spurred on by a determination to live and work in line with my values.

When not working you'll mostly find me in the kitchen or, playing, watching or listening to sport.

I’m Nick Speller, Primary School teacher, Em LA ICT Adviser and now Curriculum and Online Safety Lead for 123ICT

Although I always get my flu shot (I'm asthmatic) I nevertheless tend to get my only cold of the year about this time.

I succumbed to a cold last Sunday. Usually, I struggle against it, trying to keep up my exercise regime. Unfortunately that usually ends up making it worse.

So this time, I continued to work, but did not exercise. Thankfully, today I feel better enough to go for a gentle jog. πŸƒ
