Yesterday, I mentioned my PhD. Today, I found out that a book by Julian Bolleter, Take me to the river, has won the Margaret Medcalf Award. Julian used a lot of my research and material from the thesis , so it was sort of like being published, without doing the work myself. Apparently, Julian was very complementary in his acceptance speech. And now I get to bask in the reflected glory.
Do you think this can be counted towards my academic research metrics?
