Today I graduated from my Ed.D. in the wonderful surroundings of Durham Cathedral (a UNESCO World Heritage site).

Both my family and my supervisor Professor Steve Higgins were there to witness it and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their advice, guidance and support during the past few years. I’d also like to thank those who have cheered me on both here and elsewhere online. πŸ™‚

My doctoral thesis has been online since I began writing it. You can access it at

This event has come at a great time between finishing up my role with JISC infoNet and starting with the Mozilla Foundation. Exciting times!

  2. Hi son!
    Didn’t we have SUCH a great day! Having Steve and the immediate family eating together to mark the end of “the long walk” was very appropriate. Dr Doug, working for Mozilla, traveling the world – where will all the experiences, skills, understanding and knowledge take you next? I wonder what your actual capacity can be???
