So, I am still on the road – currently in Perth. While it has been a little stressful on the work side of things (not helped by missing a flight for the first time – not a pleasant feeling), it is balanced out by getting to see some friends while I am here!
I also received some texts and emails last night telling me that the Chronos Awards ballot has been released, and that I am on it! All very exciting, but even more exciting to see some good friends on there as well. So, whatever happens, there will be reason to celebrate!
You can find the complete list below, and voting instructions are here (scroll al the way down). Whoever you thinks should win, if you are eligible please do vote. Like the other awards, the more community investment in the awards the healthier they are.
