It would appear that "MI" doesn't just stand for "Market Intellegence", but also "Management Information". Today's my first day on the MI Team, having got the role at interview yesterday. If anything, it's more interesting than market intelligence work would be, because I'm on the dev team that puts together the applications that generate all the business management reports, so I'm going to really get into the nuts and bolts of how the business is run.

The team here are all nice - two of my immediate colleagues are gamesheads, which is fantastic. Instant common ground. Charles, is one of the writers at NTSC, which is a real coincidence. If State is the unofficial pet site of PC Gamer, NTSC is the unofficial pet site of GAMES(TM). So it's a bit weird to have two people so heavily involved with such good games websites working together on the same project...

The commute isn't nearly as hideous I thought it would be - only 45 minutes from dropping off Fleur at work, so it's manageable. Hursley is a wonderful site, too. It's going to be lovely in the summer, as the complex of buildings is in the middle of a huge private park. I think this is going to be a good project to be on.
