I’m back, baby!

Feels like we’ve been here before. I blog, then I disappear and then I reappear with apologies. So yes, I’m doing the apology thing again. When last I wrote, I was doing some in depth reviews of my time in Italy at the techPEAKS accelerator. I had a couple more posts planned and then life…
