No time to breathe...

Lots of things happen... lots of things to work on... I don't do anything else than work, work, work... but vacation is 'round the corner... I can smell it!

A short update:

What else? Well, in-between there's a week of vacation by the sea, back in Romania.

I can't believe it's still summer there - here we had to give up the sandals and the short sleeves ... and the day is getting shorter every day! Not that I'd complain about - I just read in the local paper that Limerick could become a very popular tourist destination in the context of global warming: we would invite people here to cool down, when Spain and Italy and Greece become too hot!!!

Interesting job announcement

The Open University is advertising an interesting position:
Research Fellow, Role of Blogs in Learning and Teaching

The Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Research Group is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on an e-learning project in the area of blogs. The project is jointly funded by the Faculty of Maths and Computing and the Virtual Learning Environment programme of the Open University. The research work will be carried out in close collaboration with industrial and academic collaborators.

Far from being just a fad, as some people predicted, blogs had become a common presence in our day-to-day lives. Their use in education gains ground, as we see.
Two years ago, this would have been my dream job. But not now... Anyone interested?!
