How people silence each other on social networks - some useful research.

Government needs to break the tech roach motels.

Data portability FTW.

Firing up Final Cut Pro, and seeing if my aging Mac can actually handle some 4k with decent proxy media settings.

Queen of the whole damn forest

Bloody hell: Facebook hires Nick Clegg as head of global affairs

I, for one, welcome our new Swedish Queen and a return to farcical aquatic ceremonies as a justification for executive power.

I’ve just been pottering around editing some old photos, from our last pre-children holiday. Two days after I got back, my life changed forever in two ways: we agreed to buy a house, and I realised that my time at my old employer was up.

Just been editing and adding links to this #next18 piece, and David Mattin’s framework for viewing new technologies is both useful and a little disturbing

Google is shutting down Google+ following massive data exposure

I’ll skip the obvious jokes and just say “oh, what could have been”. #interhacktives
