”I accept the confidence vote result but Theresa May should still meet the Queen and resign”
63% is no landslide unless you compare it to the Brexit vote that Jacob is an ardent fan of - not to mention that he’s been angling for her job for a while now.
Phew - just under the wire!
Welcome to Episode 0.1 - that is Part Two of Episode ZERO, where I explore a little more about how to make a podcast out of a fairy liquid bottle, some duct tape and a pair of scissors.
I also refer back to part one - and wonder if anyone can answer the quiz.
Alan played by the ‘rule book’ all his life. When he turned 70, he started ‘walking on the wild side’.
My series ‘Real Stories of Real People – Travels Without Charley’ continues on BIZCATALYST 360° with the 20th in the series.
Being in ‘Europe’ in the early 70s I did know of the other bunny … on moving to the US and being exposed to Energizer bunny I just assumed that the crazy pink rabbit was developing. Only now did I learn that the bunny of my youth was a Duracell bunny.
THAT’s how good Duracell’s branding was!
I still buy Duracell.
One day America will emerge from the dark ages. One day.
Introduced some emojis to index a few of my posts on the Words site.
In my world, there is even a space for both!
Pictures - they say - are worth a thousand words.
Words however are very specific and in many ways less open to interpretation (lawyers aside!!)
So, I am going for both.
Here on my muttering stream - i have oft’ referenced the closing down of my different social spaces, so might I welcome you to :
Words - the lead content on this space are words - sometimes supported by pictures … but not always.
Pictures- the lead content on this space are pictures - sometimes supported by words … but not always.
Both are based on Blot.IM

Also to come soon … Sounds.

And that … that right there … that is the rub (my bold)
”Let’s put that another way. No matter what happens from this point onward—no matter what the Mueller inquiry reveals or doesn’t about conspiracy with the Russian government—the fact is that prosecutors have evidence to allege that “Individual-1,” aka Trump, ordered Michael Cohen to break campaign-finance law and lie about it. Even if you believe, as Republicans do, that those crimes are unworthy of impeachment and removal (even if less severe crimes were enough to impeach Bill Clinton), few would say they should go unpunished after Trump leaves office.”

I attended this yesterday …. a 1 day (actually closer to two days squeezed into one day ) event feauturing Tim Berners Lee, Vince Cerf, Professor Wendy Hall and a veritable host of others.
During the day I posted a series of images and comments in separate posts, today I am consolidating them into a single post to bring more of a story together.
In chroniclogical order »
… with Ray Wang, Mei Lin Fung
… and Vint Cerf
Vint Cerf and Tim Berners-Lee … who didn’t invent the internet or the www (respectively) … at least according to them.
Dame Wendy Hall …, with Sir Tim listening quietly in the background.

Why on earth the article is headlined ‘The Last Curious Man’ …. I have no idea, yet another reason why I am not a publisher, they must know what they are doing. Right?
The devil is in the detail, which for such an article seems to be excruciatingly short.
Very clever .. and via the inimitable Kottke … BUT … shouldn’t number 5 be described as ‘Flan’ or ‘ Quiche’?
You know those people that talk loudly over the speaker that you are all trying to listen to?
… and then when you do finally get through the noise, it turns out a woman is telling the rest of the panel that businesses are managed by men - i.e. no diversity - and a man interrupts to explain why she is wrong.
I think I know what he means … but is it what he meant?
