Mitochondrion M5.2 pictures

I finally got together with Grist for some pictures of the Mitochondrion Mark 5.2, my 800 LED glowstaff. After mending it after Burning Man, that is.

Images from the NZ flag competition. And of course, had to do Laser Kiwi – it’s the people’s choice!

New job

I was helping someone to unload the dishwasher at work…

Her: “Thanks for helping.”
Me: “No problem, I like easily achieved tasks with clear outcomes.”
Her: “So why do you work in policy then?”
Me: “umm… I’ll get my coat.”

Which is a long-winded way of saying, for those who don’t know yet, I’ve left MPI and I’m now working for MBIE, managing their investments in materials and manufacturing research.
