the good life in a digital age

leaving RNIB

The Web Strategy Programme of work that I’ve been working on at RNIB has been completed and in the current climate there’s not likely to be big new web projects coming up. So it’s time for something new.

It’s tough times in the sector and it looks like I won’t be replaced with another IA.

I’m probably never going to work in an office quite as purple again.

And it’s really unlikely I’ll work in an office with this many dogs again (and that makes me very, very sad). I’m also disappointed that I won’t see the new online library through to launch.

Things to take away:

  • sight loss is something that happens to lots and lots of people as they get older. Accessibility is just as much about partially sighted users.
  • don’t do large scale customisations of commercial software (knew this already but seem to need reminding)
  • proper lunch breaks, with nice people sat round tables eating nice food are a wonderful thing
