We can do IT! :)

Over the last few months I've been working with various fab people to get The <goto> Foundation up and running. Being an academic, setting up a non-profit organisation is not something that I've got a lot of experience with, and that's my big excuse for why it has taken me such a long time ;)

On the positive side, I have learnt a ridiculous amount this year, about setting up organisations, the non-profit sector, and a lot more besides. I've also learnt quite a bit about myself, which has been "interesting" too. I now know that I'm very patriotic, very passionate about computer science, and very good at overcommitting and wearing myself out amongst other things. I've also learnt that I'm very lucky to know so many amazing, clever, kind and giving people :)

So, I decided to set up The <goto> Foundation at the end of last year to

"make computer science more meaningful to the general public, generate interest and excitement in computing and help to create a tech savvy workforce".

My blogpost from last November tells that story in more detail: http://drblack.posterous.com/the-foundation

Since then I have spent almost every waking moment trying to work out how to make this positive change happen. It has not been easy......

Stare at the + sign. Don't let your eyes move off that + sign, no matter what you see! If your eyes move, go back to looking at the + sign.

I seem to have lost track of who on Google+ first pointed this out. Sorry, but thanks!
