Blogs are so 1999

Published by Matt Setchell on

I started this website in 1999. So, some 16 years later, after it being the home of my own company for the last 7 years – I am giving it another shot as a blog. 120 characters on the twitter (@msetchell) just doesn’t seem to be enough sometimes.

And I have something I can talk about as well now. I have a job. A job that has evolved over 10 years, into something that I now actually, usually, enjoy.

I have done my stint as toner changer, and done my stint as the bloke pointing out to ever more perplexed teachers that their projector is in the ceiling, and is integral to something displaying on their IWB, and so should really be switched on. Whether they like it or not.

I avoid that on a daily basis. Avoid is probably the wrong word. It doesn’t happen any more. I work across 5 schools managing every aspect of their IT and I pride myself on making IT work in classrooms and in SMT offices. I manage a team that prides itself on making exciting IT a reality.

So that’s what this blog will be about. About things I/we are doing, and things we have done, or not done. I don’t expect people to pay attention, so feel free to carry on, or become part of the conversation.
