Remoting it ... 19 #eqnz
GETTING TO WORK It’s a challenge just getting to work. A big one. I realised on Monday I wasn’t going to make it in time to be anywhere near productive - we were 15 mins late dropping little miss at kindy (North New Brighton) which meant by the time I’d dropped Steve at work (Styx) I wouldn’t get to work (airport) until after 9.30. I’d get half an hour done,...

Think differently #eqnz #gapfiller [please RT]
I’m working with Coralie Winn of Gap Filler to set up a temporary Book Exchange in CHCH. We’d love you to send us a copy of a book that made you THINK DIFFERENTLY in some way, to take part in this installation project. We’re hoping that this will be a fun project for people to take participate in, and to benefit from, and we hope that by going with the THINK DIFFERENTLY theme it may be...

Remoting it ... 18 #eqnz
My worst fears about working remotely have been realised. Two big quakes hit Christchurch yesterday while I was out of town. Apparently on a new fault (there are MORE?!) My family are all ok, and I’m home now, but at the time I felt, and was, so far away from them. I felt sick with worry and couldn’t concentrate. To think that morning I was worrying ash from the Chilean volcano was...

So I’m working in the Tauranga office today and tomorrow, possibly longer. I’m not sure yet whether I’ll be able to get home because of this Chilean ash cloud … I’m waiting to hear what the VAAC have to say. Anyhow, I just wanted to share something incredibly gratifying that I overheard one of my colleagues say to another colleague. ”You know, once you get the...

On my flight to Tauranga last night I was sitting beside a Disaster Recovery expert who’d been hunting white tailed deer in Stuart Island. We got chatting about this and that - disaster and recovery where high on the agenda. As we came into Wellington we noticed a spectacular sunset and wondered why we were landing at the northern end of the airstrip. Somehow I’d missed the news about...

datamuse: The British Library launched an app today that you can use to access its 19th century book collection. Looks like there’ll be a charge for the service eventually, but for now you can try it out for free.
Remoting it ... 15 #eqnz
The last week has involved: cataloguing for Tauranga library, trying to hunt down some non existant publications by Ernst and Young about risk management, cataloguing online versions of District Plans and Regional Policy Statements to our catalogue … and it continues. On the home front, we’re stripping wallpaper, awaiting an ‘ok’ from EQC to go ahead with having our...
