In previous years I have enjoyed making Christmas collections of curated open images and artifacts along various ‘Open Advent’ themes.

In 2011 OUCS had its first ‘Open Advent Calendar’, followed in 2012 by the ‘One-Horse-Open-Sleigh‘ and in 2013 by ‘Online Presents‘.

This year to save me from tears, I am touting the ‘advent of technology’ hashtag. (Not particularly successfully it has to be said).

My best festive themes  feature ‘raise a glass for our Google Glass project’, ‘choose your tools carefully with our Christmas TREE‘ and ‘be careful of your digital footprints in the snow’.  Jo gamely joined me with some sterling ‘elf sciences work.

However, today being REF day, and Edinburgh having done rather well, I can point you to genuine CHSS nuts boasting in an open flyer!
