Hi all, once again my blog has kind of slipped off my radar but I am still here with a load of half written posts.

Excuse for this absence are, a return to teaching at Huddersfield University, a draft deadline for my PhD (December), my podcast and all the other podcasts, oh and the fact I am getting ready to move house.

So all quite exciting…

In exchange for your on going patience I will point you to this incredible song, David Rovics – Behind the Barricades.

Normal service will resume soon.

So while I have no personal insight to offer or experience it feels appropriate to mention the passing of Steve Jobs here.

While originally an Atari user, then a Windows user and now a Mac user I have alway admired the commitment to great products, technology and risk taking of Apple Company due in no small part I presume to the leadership of Steve Jobs.

So my CreativePact is half way through and I am yet to miss a podcast though it has got close a few times. I have found the daily podcast challenging to do but fun, though at times the content could have been better.

While my daily podcast has sucked in most of the content I would normally blog about I have managed to integrate my Twitter activity in with this blog. Don’t worry you are not about to be swapped by Tweets, rather my Tweets and @ replies will be slotted into my archives as posts so they should not appear in the rss feeds or on the main page.

I though it would be cool to bring them into the blog as often I found that conversation on Twitter is either the cause or caused by a blog post and it would be good to record that information.

Of course I would suggest that you follow me on Twitter @scotthewitt so you can get involved.

So havent posted here for a while due to the pressure of my #creativepact podcast. It has been a lot of fun podcasting everyday of September so far and its been interesting to follow over peoples blogs as well.

Also Monday (7th September) was the first live Huddersfield What’s On Podcast which was streamed on justin.tv.

Also TheAudioPodcast returned for it’s second season again streamed live on justin.tv.

I suspect the rest of the week maybe quiet as well as I am shooting a wedding this weekend and will need to prepare for it.

Also I keep meaning to post to my photo site, so will report back on Saturday wedding there.

So after a couple of weeks of planning I am ready to start my 2011 Creative Pact on the 1st of September. Am planning on making a podcast every day for the whole of September. You can track my progress online at podcast.scotthewitt.co.uk where you can also subscribe to podcast for free as well.

Am looking forward to it very much and hope to have a few surprises over the course of the month.
