Still love this old late nineties drum and bass mix tape of mine which is now up on Youtube. For me this was a golden era of drum and bass, after all the ragga and attitude of the dying rave scene had petered out and a new era was heralded by the likes of LTJ Bukem, Photek, John Beltran, et al. It was an era of non-cheesy, non-chipmunk female vocals and hanging chords, and as much about the space between as the bass extremes. I think the sound has stood the test of time but maybe that’s just my nostalgia wafting over me again. Hope you like it – Big Up Yer Ches’
How much of a legend is this guy! And what a great video. Simple story, but something really different. A very lucky guy who’s been able to do exactly what he’s wanted to do. He’s kept the faith and is earning quite a reputation for himself and his wonderful work.

I don’t normally write financial related blog posts but I was inspired by a friend of mine, Tom Nixon after a coffee and Twitter conversation we had recently (as you do). He pointed me in the direction of a documentary from a couple of years back called The Secret of Oz.
No excuses – watch it. It’s embedded below.
The revelation of the documetary (which really shouln’t be a revelation but more just common sense/knowledge) is that there isn’t enough money to go round. There never will be. Why – because all money is created as debt. Read more »
Dear Technical Support,
18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.
To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9. Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better. Read more »
In his brilliant article over on Cognitive Egde today Dave Snowden ties together my great passions in a coherent way that reflects a point in the divergence of thinking that has been dawning on me.
Having schooled in Social Media under the brilliant Antony Mayfield I’ve seen first hand how the simplest enterprise social network can change the culture of an organisation for the better.
Dave Snowden’s 3rd basic rule backs up this simple theory: “Social Network Stimulation is one of the most important methods I ever created for doing this [cultural change] and it can transform culture both by action and by achieving a network density which solves problems without the need for explicit definition.”
I know it’s a tool and the needs analysis should come first, but if you want to get started with change allow people to share whatever they want, and watch it grow to become something – it’s fascinating.

The Crunchies happened over in the US – Techcrunch’s annual awards ceremony. Here’s the list of winners. No real surprises, except maybe that Zuckerberg won it again. Surely there are some more progressive CEO’s worthy of note. Great to see the developers social network Github winning best startup. Read more »
I’ve been a long time campaigner to get Facebook to fix their internal search engine, and it now finally looks like they’ve listened!
An incredible headline (borrowed entirely from this article) for an amazing project that represents the most diverse use of technology in the most unusual place. This cool little video explains all.
