The bucket-list – a keyword-schema

I’ll admit it: there’s an awful lot of stuff on this website of mine. And there are so many tools and suchlike here that it can be difficult to find one’s way around, or to work out which tools to

The bucket-list – changing direction

I’ve given up on enterprise-architecture. Why? Several reasons, really. The main one is that, even now, enterprise-architecture still isn’t enterprise architecture – and there are still massive vested-interests against its ever being so. Its literal meaning should be ‘the architecture of the enterprise‘;

At IASA Ireland 2017

I’ve spent the past week in Ireland, first in Dublin at the IASA Ireland 2017 conference (co-hosted by ICS, the Irish Computer Society), and also at a follow-on event organised by Gar Mac Críosta. Paddy Baxter‘s theme for the conference

May Day, and a mayday for our world

And yeah, this is where it gets seriously scary. Not just for me: for just about everyone. I mentioned in the previous post that “I hate the money-economy”. It might be useful if I explained why? — Yes, this is May Day. Beltane,

The bucket-list – funding the work

And, yeah, this is where it gets kinda scary. For me, anyway… I hate the money-economy. (Understatement… But explaining that is for another post than this one.) The reality, though, is that I do have to find some way to work with

The bucket-list – next steps

Frameworks, tools and so on. All the stuff that’s in the bucket-list. There’s a right way to do it. There’s a wrong way to do it. (There’s also an all-too-common incompetent way to do it – throw together a mish-mash of half-baked

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
