There are three Friday the 13ths in 2012, one is today. There was only one last year. It’s something about ’13’ and something about ‘Friday’ that when you put them together, it’s a bit spooky. No real reason why, I’m not superstituous one little bit, except when I come to think about it, I am...

I’m reading (devouring more like) the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. Jobs does not come across like a particularly nice man, to deal with or to work with, but the passion comes across. The single minded vision, the absolute devotion to phenomenal user experience, it’s all there. No doubt as I read on (I’m...

I was listening to a podcast the other day, and on it a business coach said “you are the star of your own movie”. He went on to say that although this may be true, everyone you come into contact with is also the star of their own movie, and of course everyone has wildly...

I live about 7 or 8 kilometres from work, and it’s a fairly pleasant bike ride in. Nothing too hilly, nothing too dangerous, a few roads to cross (7 in fact) and most of the ride is on bike paths or quiet side streets. I find it to be safe, and clean and easy, and...

The roads were a bit busier today. After a quiet first week back, in which many in these parts would have taken that first week off, you could tell there were more people going to work today.

I remember the conversation like it was yesterday. He rang me up with some exciting news, “I’ve got some exciting news!”. “Yes?” I said, thinking he’s done some brilliant deal with a major client, or someone wanted to invest or buy us out, or something. “I’ve tracked down the owners of that domain name, and...

I now have internet on my TV. WOW! Just analysing that first sentence is incredible. Internet on my TV. I remember growing up in the 1970s when we all sat down to watch a TV show, as a family, me probably squatting cross legged on the floor. The 6pm TV news was an event in our household....

Well, I have survived my first day back at work for 2012. Quiet on the roads, Beast of Burden blaring loudly in the car, I made it in at the usual time. The normal start of the year ritual of asking everyone how their Christmases and New Years went as per usual, with everyone slightly tentative...
