Timmy Elsewhere

This is rather fun.

I\’ve just been appointed as a Fellow at the Adam Smith Institute.

An honour and an ornament, not worthy etc.

The major benefit (and one explicitly intended) is that when approaching a commissioning editor I actually have a handle to use, something to say in response to the inevitable "Well, who are you then?"

So now all I need to do is find out who such commissioning editors are….

  1. Well Done & Congratulations.

    For he’s an Adam Smith Fellow..
    For he’s an Adam Smith Fellow..
    For he’s an Adam Smith Fellow..

    and so say all of us…

  2. Congratulations! does the fellowship provide a staff allowance so you can employ your son-in-law as a researcher while he’s off work?

    Tim adds: Sadly not: the honorarium is enough for a posh dinner to celebrate but no more (this isn’t public service you know!). The honour is of course invaluable….

  3. Mazeltov. I assume that, like an Academy Award, it will double your asking price…

    Tim adds: I think it’s a little more like on of the more minor Academies…it will double the number willing to negotiate with me upon price….or return pitch enquiries perhaps.

  4. Congartualtions. I trust this won’t elevate you to such exulted heights that you won’t be able to entertain and educated us with your observations.

    Tim adds: that I should do so more often seems to be the point….
