In addition to my About page, I feel compelled to confess that this is my second attempt at a blog.
Yes, to my dismay the first effort withered in 2005 as it was eating into my PhD study time.
Whilst the PhD is still ticking over - alongside my full time job as a cultural insight person - I'm now back (with a vengeance!), and a more realistic 'blog rate' for good measure in 2007.
So, if I do disappear into my academic pothole from time-to-time, please bear with me; it's just a manic deadline thing.
