I had meant to spend more time crafting my intro to CLMooc16 – trying out some tools I’d not used before, curating some of my digital artefacts – that sort of thing. But then Brexit happened, and everything changed. For the last 10 days I have slept badly and spent my waking hours on the verge of tears worrying about the country I live in and the country I come from: furious at the politicians and media that have caused this massive clusterfuck, and unable of doing more than going through the motions and ranting over social media.
