2018 TODO list
Mon 01 January 2018
A new year! What to do?
Here's a brief list of things I hope to do to Make Things Better this year:
Improve the crowdsourcing aspects of In Collision With.
Campaign for better cycle infrastructure and safety in Oxford(shire), including:
- Meeting with a representative of Thames Valley Police's roads policing team.
- Getting Oxfordshire County Council to enact a Traffic Regulation Order to make the mandatory cycle lanes on the Woodstock and Oakthorpe Roads enforceable.
- Produce a wiki page for the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain about snow and ice treatments for cycle infrastructure, following this Twitter thread.
Better support Save Brackley Library in protecting library services in Northamptonshire.
Endeavour to create or discover a working environment in which I feel that I'm effecting positive change and making progress. This has been rather missing over the last 6-12 months, and it's not going to be particularly beneficial to me or the organisation if it doesn't get better.
Updated 25 January: I'm starting a new job with mySociety on the 26th of February!
Attend Restore's Mental Health First Aid training.
Play with setting up a (technically Not A Service) Mastodon instance for the University as a collaborative space away from Twitter. I'd also like to deploy this PR so that users can make uni-only posts while still being connected to the federated community.
Updated 25 January: This isn't going to happen now, as I'm leaving the University.
Add comments to this blog. (An "easy" one!)
Updated 18 January: [Done!]
Learn to knit?
I'll try to update this page as I go. If you're wondering how I'm getting along with any of these, please hassle me!
