Well I finally did it. PhD viva is now over. Passed. Subject to some minor corrections I’m a doctor!

I’ve spent all weekend celebrating and enjoying the congratulations and good wishes of family, friends and colleagues.
To cap the weekend off a parcel arrived in the post today from Wiley. Complementary copies of Media Production, Delivery and Interaction for Platform Independent Systems: Format-Agnostic Media, the book I co-edited and co-authored with colleagues on the FascinatE project last year.
