I set up this online CV cos I wanted to experiment with what happens if your CV can be edited by anybody and/or there is an easy way for anyone to add a comment re your work/publications (eg via the discussion page) - scary stuff. It is not totally up to date - there are big holes in terms of publications for example - feel free to add any that you spot are missing.

You can find some of my publications from The Knowledge Network or my entries in ORO.

You can follow me on Twitter where I am @PeterT or check out my LinkedIn account. I do have a Facebook page but don't really use it.

If you have worked with me or know my work then please feel free to go to the discussion page and add a peer-review comment - or heck, just update my CV which is now looking a bit out of date!

If you want to 'have a chat' then send me a tweet @PeterT
