Putney Bridge & the train bridge.

Out for a fun day's rambling, getting lost, finding coffee shops and avoiding the TV cameras - thankfully not for me, but for the posh lad boat race tomorrow.

Learning to Learn
Forget highlighters & rereading... effective learning combines retrieval practice + distributed/spaced learning.

Really wish I'd known this back in college

Which basically also means that real world learning (even apprenticeship and mentorship) is a much more effective approach than what the traditional academic system has to offer.

#Agile  Culture in business.... @ Spotify

For many, 'Agile' is a buzz word for just being random/chaotic in business. The values of the Agile Manifesto seem to have been lost. Luckily, many companies are re-finding those values. 

For example: #Spotify  

This 13 min animated vid from Agile Coach/Consultant Henrik Kniberg is really exciting... sums up the keynote talk he did at Scrum Paris 2013 too :)

You're welcome +Rolf Anthony Young.

I'd add
- Slowing down the tempo before recording to get the best performance... handy as my timing (guitar/keyboard) ain't spot on :)
- Creating a template starter song file with commonly used audio (voc, bkvoc, guitar,) midi instruments and mastering setup.

Story
Tagline
Autonomous Independent Rational Spirit
Introduction
I'm the author of sci-fi novels Terra Swarm  Erebus and Soundings. In addition, I'm a creative writer, innovation manager & ghostwriter.

You can find my books here:
WRITING: The Linien Primae Terrasodes

I've unleashed the first of a science fiction series featuring the autonomous anti-hero Linien Primae.

I'm currently working on a series of Terrasodes - episodic books detailing deep space exploration. The books delve into the odyssey of autonomous anti-hero Linien Primae. 

On the surface the books deal with major themes, with the first installment Terra Swarm focusing firmly on positive & negative liberty.

The second book Erebus is an allegorical journey of fraternity, fidelity, and struggle under the harshest of circumstances - a life marooned.

The third book Soundings finishes this trilogy with a look at equality in a future society normalized beyond recognition.

The writing contains a natural sprinkling of suspense, intrigue, romance and humor. But dig deeper and you can unearth sub-text relating to psychology, politics, sociology, religion and philosophy.

Where's my blog?

I blog about writing, music & song writing over at SquidInky.com.

MUSIC: Songwriting & Production

My first love & passion is still music composition though. Been writing since I was 16 and enjoy nothing better than losing many hours crafting new tunes. 

Freely Available Songs
  • Better Days - Collaboration with Patrick Sharpe (Genre: Ska)
  • Take Me For Who I Am - A writing collaboration I did with 3 local Dublin songwriters. Vocal by Carrie Heskins, production by Rod Dunne  (Genre: Drum & Bass)
  • Number One - A solo piece I wrote, performed & produced (Genre: Ska)
