Welcome to my new personal website. If you’re looking for G.C. Simsion & Associates, providers of consulting and education services, please click here. Details about my new book, The Rosie Project, can be found at http://textpublishing.com.au/books-and-authors/book/the-rosie-project/.
This is where I post details of writing projects, films, and other personal projects, and occasionally blog on subjects that I hope will be interesting to most of the people I know – in consulting, writing, film-making, data management, and life in general. Please forgive some disorder while we get it all sorted. This may take forever.
