RBS and its Really Bad Software

No Comments 30 June 2012

I work in technology and along with my writing it provides me with a very good living but every so often something happens that makes me realize, firstly how horribly dependent we are on the stuff and secondly how its failure can pitch us into chaos, literally at the click of a mouse.

Are you a Petrol Head?

No Comments 25 June 2012

I recently blogged about robot cars and our subsequent loss of one more area of personal freedom as computers start doing something else for us. Well, when writing said blog I never considered that we might actually be moving into a post car world. Continue Reading

What do Rio, Coldplay and the Queens Jubilee have in common?

No Comments 11 June 2012

I went to see Coldplay last night in Manchester at the Ethiad Stadium along with 50,000 others. It was brilliant. We were dazzled with a fabulous 2 hour set complete with PyroTechnics, the most incredible monster size HD screens and a dazzling light show courtesy of the 25,000 or so wirelessly triggered wrist bands which flashed different colours at various points during the concert.

The Rise of the Machines

1 Comment 21 May 2012

Are we slowly sucking the fun out of life? I refer of course to the news that Google has been given the go ahead to launch a self driven car in Nevada. That’s right. A car that drives itself without the need for human intervention. Continue Reading

No Comments 13 May 2012

Are You Feeling Smart?

1 Comment 09 May 2012

When’s the last time you interviewed for a job? It’s been many years for me and after reading a recent article in the Guardian about the interviewing approach at Google and other tech companies I’m quite relieved because I suspect there would be no job at the end of it for me. Continue Reading

Data Decay and the Chauvet Cave Paintings

No Comments 30 April 2012

For all our advances in technology, particularly on the computing front, it was with some surprise that I read about one element of this recent revolution that actually seems to be going backwards. That is, data stored electronically decays! Continue Reading

What do Fracking and Iceland have in common?

1 Comment 24 April 2012

I have to say it’s been interesting to see UK energy policy taking shape over the last six months with forays into areas that ten years ago would have seemed preposterous. Continue Reading

Nights of Villjamur

No Comments 17 April 2012

Its been a little quiet here on a Rush of Green but that’s because I was on a well earned break over Easter.

One thing I was able to do was catch up on my reading and one novel I read moved me to write a review which is unusual for me. Nights of Villjamur is an unusual book. I discovered the author Mark Charan Newton through Social Media. Who says it doesn’t work! He has a great blog. If you like all things green and drenched in whisky then it’s for you! He also writes fantasy novels. Continue Reading

It’s no longer about Climate Change

No Comments 08 April 2012

I love podcasts and use them all the time – what busy person wouldn’t in today’s world and I’m no different although one downside is that yesterdays or last week’s news tend to be your current affairs. Continue Reading
