So, I’ve been back in Berlin now for almost 3 months after taking 10 months off to work-travel. And crikey, what a time it has been! There’s been so much happening recently, and we’re in the middle of conference season too. Here’s just a list of stuff I’ve written or been involved in the last few weeks, partially for me to keep track of it all, and partially in case any of you all find some of it useful.
