The bucket-list – a clarification

I need to do a follow-on to my previous post ‘The bucket-list‘, to add a few clarifications. It’s not that I’m doing an “I’m taking my bat and ball and going home so there”. It isn’t even about the money

The bucket-list

To quote Terry Pratchett’s character Granny Weatherwax, “I ATEN’T DEAD”. Not yet, anyway. But the blunt fact is that I was born quite a long time ago. A time when there were still a fair few horse-drawn vehicles in our village,

A post-rights era?

Do we now live in a post-rights era? Rights so much seem part of the social fabric now – along with endless arguments about who should and shouldn’t have them, and why. But if there’s talk about ‘post-rights’, what’s really

A post-jobs era?

Do we now live in a post-jobs era? With the rise of AI (artificial/augmented intelligence) and suchlike, do we need to rethink the meaning of ‘a job’ – or what it is to be without one? To me, the short-answer

Maggie’s Farm

We’re two days away from what will almost certainly be one of the greatest collective-blunders ever to impact the US, and possibly the world as well. Here in Britain, we have a similar collective-blunder that is fast approaching its endgame.

On not-retiring – a quick status

A quick status-report to say where I’m getting to so far with the business of ‘not-retiring‘. What I did in the previous post was to list the probable options for what I could/should do next. Given that the amount of

More on not-retiring

This one’s a follow-up on my previous post, from a month ago now, ‘On not retiring‘. What I said back there was that, yeah, fairly obviously, people like me (and you too, I presume) don’t ever really retire – we

RBPEA: Opportunities unheeded…

Following on from that description of ‘further-futures’ enterprise-architecture, several folks have asked me for a real example of the kind of world that I see, as an outcome of ‘Really-Big-Picture Enterprise-Architecture‘ [RBPEA]. In other words, what would be the outcome
