This year I have focused primarily on multimedia journalism and documentary. In an age of fake news and fears over corporate and state control of media outlets, it is important to make use of emerging technologies and tactics to bring honest reporting, and to explain complex, important topics, to as many people as possible. I have set up a company as a limited liability partnership, a flexible, scalable, individually accountable platform that distributes the profits of work as evenly as necessary. The shareholders are the workers and the content makers. Going forwards, I will exploit social networking technology, such as Linkedin and Twitter, Youtube, or Bit-Chute and optimise my website for various hardware, including mobiles.

You will notice nothing wildly unprecedented about the work. My focus is on substance over style, a rejection of postmodernism, and an attempt at embracing objective, balanced, and potentially controversial views. I am moving gradually into the study of scientific research, which I want to investigate in an in-depth but irreverent style, to de- mystify technologies and start the process of ordinary people thinking about their use in everyday life. By embracing innovative technologies, we can revolutionise the creative sectors and convert our ideas into actionable products and solutions, with or without external collaboration.
