Computer Science Writer of the Year

October 19, 2007

A few months ago I mentioned that I’d won the Computer Science Writer of the Year award for a piece on how computers are helping people with dementia. Just thought I’d mention that, for anyone who’s interested, the EPSRC have published the winning entries.

Computer Science Writer of the Year

April 19, 2007

On Friday I had a rather exciting email from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. For those unfamiliar with the EPSRC, it is one of the seven government-funded bodies that coordinate research and allocate grants to UK universities. Apparently, I have been awarded their Computer Science Writer of the Year prize for a piece I wrote on new developments in computing that help people suffering from dementia.

Obviously, I’m very pleased about this award but, so far, there has been no mention of a prize-giving lunch.
