"I am, and always will be, comfortable with the fact that I'm just a little bit 'odd'..." Hi there! I'm Lisa and I'm the Online Community Manager at the IET.

I am working with a number of like minded people to promote the sharing of best practice in the rigorous application of measurement in all disciplines and sectors, and to identify and champion collaborative research and standards development to drive convergence across these disciplines and sectors. This Blog is being established to support that effort and highlight some of the opportunities. If you see value in the effort please contribute ideas and questions
Have you ever wondered what it's like being a Community Manager at the IET? What we get up to? How we keep on top of everything? How we help our volunteers to tell the world how great Engineering really is? Subscribe to this Blog to follow the highs, the lows, the weird, the wonderful and sometimes surprising side of life at Michael Faraday House and beyond!
There's obviously more than one IET volunteer resident in New Zealand (aka Godzone ), but I don't think anyone else is blogging yet, so first in, first served (mwahahahaha). I volunteer in a variety of roles - currently I'm a committee member of my Local Network (South Island) , a member of NZ Forum, and chair of the Communities Committee - Asia Pacific (CC-AP) (which also means I'm a member of the Communities Resourcing Committee (CRC) ).
A view of life (it's hard) the Universe (it's quite big and mostly full of emptiness) science (it's just as hard as life but with more maths) and technology (the good, the bad and the ugly) from the perspective of a highly harassed technician, which admittedly might be skewed. They say the glass is half empty- experience tells me to check whether or not that glass is cracked and leaking, and check exactly what it's half full of. Prepare for strangeness.
