Besides maintaining this blog in WordPress, I’ve made websites and learning environments using Mediawiki, PingPong, Rapid Weaver and even hand-coded html with a bit of css. At my latest position, “Fronter” was used as the learning environment.

On occasions, I’ve reviewed manuscripts submitted to Scandinavian Political Studies, Local Government Studies and European Journal of Political Research. I have also reviewed manuscript proposals for Routledge.
