To enable the Research Computing team members to write down opinions they have with respect to the solutions they have and issues they have encountered. This is not limited to the current technologies but future solutions and how they will impact on those running it and more importantly those who are using it. We would like to link posts to our team twitter accounts, thereby raising awareness and also raising the individual's profile.
