Some highlights of Dan’s time at the Bodleian and a look at his imminent departure, for those in need of some reading material:


  1. Simon McLeish Simon McLeish says:

    Sorry I can’t be there to wish you a farewell in person, but wish you all the best at Automattic – sounds like a fantastic place to work!

  2. Katherine Ferguson Katherine Ferguson says:

    Hello – and goodbye :-)

    I’ll not be able to join you on 16th, so will say “all the best for the future” by this email.

  3. Su Wheeler Su Wheeler says:

    Just a note to say that I’m sorry I won’t be able to be at your leaving party – we’re away in Frankfurt this week.

    It’s been lovely working with you; you’re my go-to guru for all matters IT Comms, and are always so patient and happy to help! You will be much missed.

    I wish you all the very best for the future

  4. Jennifer Townshend Jennifer Townshend says:

    I’m not going to make it to your send off today because I’ve had to stay home with the twins who are suffering with bad teething and possible HFM. Really sad I won’t be able to come and say bye – typical timing for poorly children!

    It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. From my magic trick on my first day in the office I knew working with you would be different. What I didn’t expect was your enteral willingness to demonstrate and teach, your inability to say no to trying things out, your amazingly generous nature, and your fantastic sense of humour, and that mattress story! The Bodleian just won’t be the same place without you. But Automattic will certainly be better off.

    I will miss working with you greatly but I hope to see you around Oxford at some point. I’d love to keep up our lunch dates! Hope all goes well with the new job. You’ll be amazing, as always.
