I’m back

Well it has been over 2 years since I last posted any links on this blog, let alone wrote anything. Well this coincides quite clearly with having a small child who at about 2 and 1/2 takes up most of my time.
But as things start to get a bit easier I thought I would pick up the keyboard and get some stuff down on virtual paper. Not sure if it will last, we shall see…

Over the coming weeks there are a couple of things I want to write about that mainly relate to 2 things: new consumer technology (anything from wearables and sports tech to my forays into hifi) and secondly some research I am currently doing into business models and how companies can use different thinking to create capacity to take more risks and be innovative. So watch this space for more on this over the coming months.

Over and out.


Tonic immobility: orca vs. great white shark


, ,

Not posted on here for a while so I am reinvigorating my blogging. Let’s start with some interesting wildlife documentaries, and this time not about crocodiles. This one is a really interesting documentary about great white’s and killer whales. Definitely worth a watch:

I wonder if tonic immobility in humans could be a good way to release massive amounts of seratonin. Would be cheaper and safer than using drugs… It clearly works with chickens.

Croc in Bristol – the story continues


, , , ,

For all of those following the Bristol Croc story, you can now start to follow the Bristol Croc on Twitter. He has now created his own twitter account. For this I think the croc deserves to be a “fantastic man”. Nifty keyboard skills for someone with claws.

In other news our local graffiti artists have immortalised the croc (at least until it gets cleaned) eating our mayor, George Ferguson. Goodness me, it doesn’t get more exciting than this in Bristol when it comes to croc news.


More croc news in Bristol



A second sighting of the croc has now been reported. Apparently a second sighting earlier in the week was a hoax, but this is a more reliable source – a middle aged female book-keeper.
Maybe if this continues it might result in some fatalities in the wider Bristol area. Don’t go down to the water’s edge, although who would want to in this weather and with the levels of pollution in the harbour, I don’t know…
