Of Oliver Twist and Porridge

So, this morning’s blog feels just a tad bit weird. Many of my peers have gone down the path I’m about to pursue. I know this, because when I tried to invite them to the platform I’m about to join, I got messages that they were already there. And not only am I going down … Read more…
