iphone app for registering research time
I’ve been beta-testing UiB’s new iPhone app that lets us register hours we work and I’m loving it. For a few years now we’ve been registering time spent teaching according to a set of rules (an hour’s lecture is multiplied by four to give total hours spent preparing and teaching, for instance) but there’s been no system for registering hours spent on research. Research is not something that only happens between nine and five in the office, and as I told our internal newspaper, I’m thrilled that I’ll finally be able to show all the research time that happens outside of the office – like that idea I had last night changing Benjamin’s nappy, for instance, or when I write a comment on someone’s blog post.
It’s amazing that they’ve set it up so it can easily sync with Gowalla, too!
