Why have a website?

This morning I went to a marvelous talk in Cape Town, by Jeff Riddell.  He made a strong argument for professional branding, encouraging all of the audience members to Google themselves, and then to consider how to optimize their on-line profile.

So today, I’ve built myself a website.  I’m not sure where it will go yet, but the starting point is interesting.  Hats off to Dr Riddell, and all of those pioneers ahead of me.
