  • #MH370 – Are we believing our own hype?

    As the painstaking search for MH370 continues and as families wait desperately for news – any news – of the fate of their loved ones, I can’t help but think we are in a dangerous mindset as a global community – that we are believing the hype of what we can and cannot do as […]

  • An ever full heart

    My heart is always full. Sometimes my heart is full of heaviness – pain, despair, anger, frustration and little isolated envies. Anger – at the disconnectedness between our hearts, between us and the pockets of truth it space and time. Frustration – at the time we are wasting on being disconnected and in pursuit of […]

  • I have gay sex because it's legal and other stupid stories

    What really pisses me off about humanity is how  – in the same stewing pot – we have some brilliant ideas that move us forward as a species and at the very same time we demonstrate such rank stupidity and brutality that really questions whether we have moved from the cave. I used to feel […]

  • I take solace in the indestructibility of energy.

    One of my dearest friend’s mummy died this Christmas and I feel so deeply saddened to hear the news. It also touches that part of me that is unprepared for the inevitable passing of my own mummy. I take much solace from this. If you have lost someone you love, I hope you find some […]

  • Why @whatsapp just became one of my favourite companies and I don't even use their software.

    I’m getting old. I don’t hanker after gadgets as much as I used to and I’m not connected to the latest app fads. Plus I wear crocs. But I read this blog post from the founders of WhatsApp –  a mobile app that lets you doing instant message to anyone in the world for free. […]

  • What happens on #Twitter when someone like #Mandela dies

    I was going to title this post – ‘What billions of silent voices screaming at the same time look like’ – but it seemed too dramatic. As I was about to release the pre-beta of my new app Hashies, the news came on the wire that Nelson Mandela had died. I wasn’t particularly shocked – […]
