Just remember that we each have our own unique perspectives and approaches to solving problems. When I give advice it's my advice and expect to be wrong. You should always seek advice from as many people as possible.

In terms of 'life advice', probably Deep Work and So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport. What if everything you knew about education by David Didau fundamentally changed the way I teach students.

Yes. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks, do what you think is best. You don't need permission from anyone.

I don't know, and I don't want to know. No cookies or third-party tracking scripts are embedded on this site. Privacy is more important than metrics.

If an idea sounds interesting I might be interested. I talk to a lot of people on a regular basis but I don't like people 'picking my brain'.

Sure, go ahead! Everything I put on you can use based on the (MIT) license of the GitHub repository. It would be nice of you to could credit me or support me.

Can you post my content on your site?

I don’t publish other people’s stuff. This is my personal site and I put whatever I want on here. I do like to share other people's work on social media.

Yea! If it fits into my schedule I will make time to do almost any interview or podcast. Contact me if you want to invite me.

Who made your website?

I did, in my spare time. I did the whole design and coding thing. The colophon page lists the technology used in creating this website.
