Thesis Submitted, and Day 2 at Talis
Tuesday, January 15, 2008 5:38:32 PM
After a lot of hard work and not much sleep I finally got my PhD dissertation (aka my "thesis") titled "Information-seeking on the Web with Trusted Social Networks – from Theory to Systems" submitted on Saturday 12th Jan. Unsurprisingly it was a lot of hard work, but also fun too when I had the time to sit back and enjoy it. Writing up does not have to be the nightmare that people make it out to be, but it does take a *long* time. Yes, even longer than you think it will, even when you've already taken into account all the advice that it takes longer than you think it will
With that under my belt I'm now onto Day 2 of my new role as a Researcher at Talis
, and delighted to have joined one of the hottest companies around working on Semantic Web technologies. There'll be more to say once we've worked out exactly what I'll be doing, but surprise surprise it'll have a definite recommendations element to it. Exciting times.
