The End of the Beginning

Though this blog has been dead in practice for almost a year now, I thought that I should make it official with a virtual tombstone:

As some of you will know, in May I took the big walk across the stage and finished my Master in Public Policy degree from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. It was an amazing two years that has enriched me in countless ways, not the least of which has been the pleasure of getting to know some amazing people from across the globe. I've made the decision to move back to Ottawa where I am about to start a position with the federal government working on a set of issues that are of great interest to me: how new technologies and ways of sharing information, specifically social media and collaborative technologies, are being incorporated into our institutions of governance. It promises to be a challenging and exciting role which I am sincerely looking forward to!

As always, you can continue to find and follow me at:
