In a few minutes I'll head off to work at the BBC. I'm to show up at 10 AM today. I never show up that late for work, so I don't know what to do with all of my free time beforehand.

Enough people have expressed curiosity about the BBC that I've asked them what their blogging policy is. One person mentioned it should be fine and another is going to double-check higher up. Even the brief conversations I've had with them have been absolutely fascinating. The project I'm to be working on sounds fascinating, looks like a lot of hard work, and I was thoroughly mystified when it was outlined to me a few days ago. I finally realized the problem: I couldn't identify the goal since I couldn't see the profit. The project itself is important in terms of providing more information to the public. It's just not valuable in the "profit" sense. After well over two decades of working in profit-driven industries, this is going to be a very interesting change of pace.
