This Big City

Busy Busy Busy week | March 8, 2010

This week has been crazy busy. So much action has been going on with our rentacoder pitch, and I have been discussing bids with the team, and also emailing the coders. I’m the most technical out of the 3 of us so I am doing the discussions and sending files and answering questions from the coder, which takes a long time. So many late nights… But the guy has been hired and he’s building the site as we speak. Tomorrow morning I am going to upload the front pages to our facebook page and start socialising HTFP!

Actually went to uni this week, and it was mildly interesting. Catherine introduced me to the idea of co-leadership, which I have decided to explore in Miguel’s essay, mostly because it ties in with something that happened on The office, one of my favourite TV shows, and I would love the opportunity to write an essay about my fav tv show. I am starting to not care about the essays though. I’m so bored of just Creative Economy, and part of me wants to just get it out the way and start my specialism. I got some super good news recently though, I have been offered an amazing Internship with the Royal Institute of British Architects in their Building Futures division as a Futurologist, so finally I will have something exciting and relevant in my life!

The Apprentice challenge was fun, it definitely showed me that Tshaped are capable of having some very interesting ideas, not just Hold the Front Pages, but again, all this teamwork and pitching is still a bit of a bore… (chocolate was awesome though). I would say my main disappointment with the course has been the lack of Economics in the Creative Economy. I studied that at school and loved it, and thought this course would at least contain a lecture on economic theory or something like that, because I think it is a really useful way of seeing the world and interpreting things.

Anyways, I don’t want to be super negative, HTFP is going great, and I am very excited about the upcoming launch, but maybe not the early mornings updating the site.

Also, I’m moving house and job this month, as well as starting my internship, ¬†launching HTFP and writing an essay, so forgive my grumpyness.
