Unfolding plans 86 – no internet access

My WiFi at home is broken. It's like we've gone back to the dark ages if not the Stone Age. Everything I have taken for granted when using my connected devices over the last few years has disappeared. Chickens have come home to roost. I've had to rely on 3G through the phone. I don't … Continue reading Unfolding plans 86 – no internet access

Unfolding plans 84 – first days back

I’m never sure about first days back.  You’ve been on holiday, everything is relaxed and you are chilled out yet the prospect of going back to work ruins your last day.  Why?  It’s something you do every Monday after the weekend and if work is something you enjoy overall then why the perturbation?

Unfolding plans 76 – products we buy that don’t really work

Would it surprise you to know that the most popular apps are to do with the weather?  Probably not if you live in Great Britain.  Here the weather is the main topic of everyone’s conversation.  If you are ever in any doubt about what to say, the weather is safe ground to start any conversation.  … Continue reading Unfolding plans 76 – products we buy that don’t really work

Next week I will be attending Thinking Digital 2015, one of the leading events in the North East digital calendar.  I’m not sure if this is the third time or the fourth that I have been.  It doesn’t matter because they are great events and I take so much away from them.  They are an … Continue reading Unfolding plans 68 – I’m really really looking forward to #TDC15

Unfolding plans 35 – If ever there was an oxymoron then this must be it.

I’m fed up with road works.  If ever there was an oxymoron then this must be it.  Road works means that they don’t.  Every journey I make seems to be severed with multiple interventions by the highways people, local council and utility companies.  Every road is dug up.  My retinas are burnt with the reflected … Continue reading Unfolding plans 35 – If ever there was an oxymoron then this must be it.

Sock drawer

My sock drawer says a lot about me unfortunately.  It also says a lot about the way life is.  It is a microcosm of how order changes into chaos and how entropy always increases.  It’s that second law of thermodynamics all over again which states that (forgive me for I paraphrase) ‘In any closed system … Continue reading Sock drawer
