Welcome to my view on the Labour Leadership Race… Collating the word on my whatsapp it seems to be a choice between a suit, lady without the same presence as JC, or a sharp minded someone or other. Who should I vote for? This labour leadership election has left me nothing short of mixed. Keir […]Read More Labour leadership contest
Divides won’t heal unless people are willing to converse properly and fairly. I think Femi doesn’t talk to persuade in this video, but to push his views and for a public “rotten tomato throwing”. Are you talking to persuade, or to push your views? This conversation is unreal on two fronts to me, the lady […]Read More Why Femi didn’t talk to persuade, but to push his views
Just wanted to share, recently I read this article… https://netguru.co/blog/cc-all-the-emails-tips-from-a It talks a lot about transparency which I totally agree with. A more transparent team is a more efficient and better team. Proper transparency means the team’s (including the client) expectations are managed and less confused. However I totally disagree with emails as the best tool for transparency. […]Read More Killing off your emails, aiming at project transparency
Autofill a decision that is slightly good. So you are “nudging” them to a good choice. There, we’ve read it. Jobs in Whitehall await. [http://www.hive.co.uk/book/nudge-improving-decisions-about-health-wealth-and-happiness/5744112/?gclid=CKvZie2wn70CFQkUwwod_IcA5g]Read More Nudge
Here’s a welcome addition to George Ferguson’s aim to make Bristol a “Laboratory for change“. He’s taking the digital upper hand and released the “Bristol Idea’s Lab”, a Bristol Home brew delib product (http://www.delib.net/dblog/tag/online-consultation/) http://georgesideaslab.dialogue-app.com/ It’ll be interesting to see what starts getting shared on there, I imagine there’ll be the usual car vs. bike debacle.

Ha ha, what a pun, the daily hate mail would be proud, anyway. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/1-billion-to-help-aes-and-nhs-staff-access-medical-records-in-hi-tech-hospital-revolution Our government is intending to spend £1 billion in a hi tech re-vamp of the NHS. That’s great news, super efficiencies, better tools and a hi tech hospital… But we’ve been here before, yes. [photo from: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/8677275/NHS-should-consider-abandoning-7bn-IT-project.html] Let’s ask, what have people […]Read More NHS I.T revolution… as in “here I.T goes again”?
Let’s make a small browser extension that every-time you “come across porn”, it adds it (anonomously) to a public database. Then Browsers, ISPs and anyone can use that database to fliter porn, investigate illegal content. It’s a public filter database, we could also sell access to it to raise our state’s bank balance. We’ll […]Read More Your country needs you! To identify porn
There aren’t many stories of positive immigration to the UK. Will someone show them off please. Somehow the popular talk is mediated by the Daily hate Mail, silly statistics based on less than 1% of the population and news channels which all talk of the EDL, benefit issues and “them”… “coming over here and stealing our jobs”. We see immigrants […]Read More “Think with your tummy” Paddington Bear would say, migration is not a crime
Facebook, Google, Angry Birds; all digital products we’ve heard of and probably use quite frequently. These are all products of success that have brought industry, jobs and prosperity to their local areas. But did you know, your children attending one of the 28 Bristol North West primary schools could be learning the first basic skills […]Read More Free campaign idea: Give your children a 21st century head-start!
Does Broadmead need to be bigger and brighter? From the visual evidence I would say the main problem is there’s a limit to how many clone shops one of the city’s centre can handle. Bigger is just going to add more free space that isn’t housing new business or pop-up shops… Hurrah, more empty shop […]Read More Bigger, brighter and emptier Broadmead
