A New Media

I set myself a challenge last week to try and listen to more radio, specifically Harrogate Community Radio. However, this Blog post references my hero, Don Quixote, the hidalgo from La Mancha. Some would say running an online radio station in a media saturated environment is a bit like Don Quixote’s Quest… but it all loops in to one story. What I have gleaned from the reading Cervantes book, Don Quixote, is that the windmills weren’t…

I admit I have been working a bit too hard recently. As a result, I am having to now limit my screen time and engage in my Daily Practice forcibly, even though I don’t want to. It can be quite a grind but to not enjoy engaging in your Daily’s is exactly what they are there for. Well, what is a Daily Practice? Well, nothing esoteric here; it is just an activity you do every day. It…

Is It A Fail?

I have stretched the terms of #365BlogChallenge – I am meant to be blogging every day. But, I have had a hell of a busy week. I have changed servers for all of the sites that I build to a Vultr Cloud server. Lightning quick and great support – they really know their digital onions. As a result, I have not been blogging. I appreciate that this is not what I said I would do…

I Dunno. Tides, Boat and Stuff…

First: If you come up with an innovation that creates value, that value is multiplied a million-fold because now you can share it outside your village. Second: If you build a community, the network effect creates increasing amounts of value as more people use it. And the pothole: As we race to create value, it’s easy to forget that it’s unevenly distributed. A safety net isn’t perfect, but it’s better than no net at all.…

Two New Shows Out In The Æther

I have two new episodes of podcasts out in the æther. The first was recorded in the small hours of yesterday. That is The Parish News – you can listen to it below – I also have the reggae show sorted – that was keeping me up late, making me pull a late one; I was up and about for around 22 hours yesterday. However, Roots Conversation, the roots reggae podcast, is a good one…

Should I Be Cautious?

Lawyers are fond of being cautious. And sometimes, parents are too, apparently. At least you won’t get blamed if something goes wrong. It turns out that we don’t need an abundance of caution. We need appropriate caution. They’re different things. Abundant caution is wasted. Things like ripe avocados and morel mushrooms are terrific to have in abundance. By definition, though, abundant caution is not only more than we need, it’s more than is helpful. Because…

Mixed Media Monday

First of all, The Jazz Show went down a storm in my immediate circle; good feedback there. It was broadcast yesterday afternoon at 4pm – a return to form. I had been worried about playing music that was a bit more contemporary, up to date and…. well … not really the Jazz I love. I am a massive fan of the Progressive and Spiritual Jazz that was in London in the late sixties / early…
