Image thanks to Smart College Visit This unhelpful comment rings in my ears whenever I hear someone say ‘that’s not fair’. It shouldn’t but it does. Yes, life is unfair but why do we accept that this is so? Should we not be striving for greater fairness? I have been thinking a lot about this … Continue reading Life’s not fair and then you die.
Image thanks to Financial Express To be frank, I am Zoomed out. Like many people I have spent too long over the last few weeks staring at a screen or two, taking part in or running online events. #CyberFest hasn’t helped of course. Even though the events have been great, it has meant keeping alert … Continue reading Things I’ve learned about running online events
It is an undeniable truth that the content on your website is never up to date enough. It is a constant battle to keep it relevant and on message. No matter how long you pour over the detail and how good it looks at the launch, when you go back you can always find something … Continue reading Maintaining the website
Image thanks to HipWallpaper Help me, I’ve fallen through the looking glass and ended up in a world that no longer makes any sense. Up is down, backwards is forwards and everything that used to make sense no longer does.

Even today I maintain the passion, despite having worked … Continue reading That’s logistics

We are in the sixth period of mass extinction that the earth has witnessed but the blame for this one can be placed firmly at humanity’s door. It won’t be long … Continue reading Mass extinction period
I watched with interest the story unfolding about the advertising issue between the Co-op and The Spectator. For those of you who may not be aware of it, the Co-op has decided to stop advertising in The Spectator because of its transphobic articles. The Spectator got its dig in first by banning the Co-op from … Continue reading It’s all at the Co-op
#CyberFest 20 is finally underway. After months of thinking about it, in what has been the strangest of years, September is finally upon us and as we all know now, September is #CyberFest. Putting the events on takes some effort and I am glad that I have some help. Clare at Beaconhouse Events helps me … Continue reading Are we going to go back?
Somehow I got involved in a Virtual Community Panel for Not-Equal. How, I’m not so sure but perhaps from when I was involved with them as part of #CyberFest and the North East Initiative on Business Ethics. Not-Equal is a network which brings together researchers, communities and partners from industry, public and the third sector … Continue reading Being on Team A
We’ve been played. We’re still being played and they will keep doing it to us as long as it works. Despite the enormous problems in the world we are easily distracted by something farcical or irrelevant. Our eyes are diverted from the real issues of the day. This has been going on for years but … Continue reading Replayed
