Embracing our inner weirdness

Easter. In the Christian calendar at least – and in the pagan one that preceded it – it’s supposed to be a time of rebirth. Yet rebirth of what? And into what, or whom? If it’s a more personal form

A kind of milestone

One thousand blog-posts. That’s quite a milestone, really. Not quite there yet: this one’s number nine hundred and ninety-nine, to be precise. Though out of those so far, there were the hundred or so in the Twitter-extracts series – ‘A week in Tweets’

Starting-friction

Great idea! Let’s get started! Uh… How do we get started? Kind of ‘There’s a hole in my bucket‘, often – everything depends on everything else, so there’s no clear place to start. But since everything does depend on everything else, it’d

Yabbies – a novel

Happy to announce that I’ve at last gotten round to publishing my sort-of-novel Yabbies. Hooray! (I perhaps ought to say ‘completed and published’, but as you’ll see, ‘completing’ isn’t quite the right word, since much of the content is made

Lost posts

Courtesy of a screw-up shared somewhere between myself and my web-hosting provider, an old back-up was overlaid onto the whole of my websites. At least two posts were lost – the announcement of my new book ‘Mapping the Enterprise’ (describing
