👋 Hi, I'm Doug and I live in the northeast of England. I'm a husband, father, and member of a co-operative I helped get started six years ago.
I work at the intersection of learning, technology, and community. I've previously been an independent consultant, worked at Mozilla on #OpenBadges and #WebLiteracy, and in schools as a teacher and Higher Education as a researcher/analyst.
I wrote my doctoral thesis on #digitalliteracies.
When I'm not working, I like 🏔️🏕️⚽🥃

👋 As part of upcoming milestones, we're implementing a way for users to create circles (like in the old G+), but going beyond using it to define audiences (i.e. visibility of content), with very granular ways to define permissions on what you post (i.e. so you can give one of your circles permission to edit your post, or use it simply to lock-down who can reply, etc): https://github.com/bonfire-networks/bonfire-app/issues/223
The MacOS version of Radio is finished, I just need to pay for an Apple Developer account to sign the binaries to distribute it on my website. Will give it a go next week when we're home. #theWorkshop
