For the non-Twitterers among you, I should explain that @iamamro is the coolest dude on the Twitter block. A benign yet insightful, contemporary Sherlock Holmes. An Academic with esoteric tastes. I felt the need to re-house him into a befitting environment. After all it is my job. I present @iamamro’s new home….

Black and white tiles to ….
