Friday Five

1. Are you going to school this year?
No. Not unless someone gives me lots of money and tells me to go do an MBA or something. I am spending too much time writing about ICT in Higher Education, though. Perhaps that counts?

2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?
1988 and 1989.

3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?
Physics and Electronics. I wouldn't be where I am today without those two courses. I also enjoyed General Studies, where we did a "The Best Books" course, and where I also started learning about Douglas Hofstadter and Soft AI.

4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?
PE and German. I wasn't particularly athletic, and I think I chose the wrong course for my second language O-level. I got on well enough with French, and now think I should have done Spanish instead of German.

5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?
I guess it was probably Mr Macready, back in primary school. He taught me it was good to love books and that it was good to play with the English language. Yes, it's true. The puns were his fault.
