Returning to the Blog

My last post here was August last year, following the utter cock-up that the government made of the A-level results. My intention in starting this blog wasn’t really to spend all my time having a go at the failing government—which is good because that be a full-time job such are their failures—but instead it was supposed to be a place to express the thoughts, questions & ideas that swim around in my noggin at a bit more length than Twitter allows.

Fake Social Media in eBooks

I’m Being Watched

I was walking back to the car at the end of the work day yesterday, scrolling though some of the notifications on my phone when I found this… It seems that I either have a fan in a very high place, or I’m on a very dangerous watchlist. I really do hope it’s the former. I […]
