This was, in many ways, a pretty bad year for me. My health has, to be frank, been appalling once more. It has necessitated treatment with cyclophosphamide in hospital, a chemotherapy agent that makes you feel very unwell and leaves your immune system vulnerable to every vulturous bug under the sun. As a result of the damage to my immune system, I also need lifelong immunoglobulin therapy to ensure that I am not killed by a common cold turning into pneumonia. This is all not great. I was not best pleased by the election result in the UK, either.

In other ways, it has been a very good year for me. I won the 2019 Philip Leverhulme Prize. We also won a Coko Foundation Open Publishing Award at OLH. We were awarded a £3m grant from Research England for the COPIM project. The Arcadia Foundation gave an additional grant towards this same project of £800,000. My book, Close Reading with Computers was published. The final manuscript of our edited volume went to The MIT Press and was accepted. Two other books went under contract. I completed the Metrics for Open Monographs project for Jisc.

I also achieved a significant musical milestone, signing to Tici Taci records; my favourite music label of all time.

This wasn’t a bad year.
