Very interesting ethical questions... should your self-driving car kill you to save many? Nice spot +Will Critchlow 
Self-driving cars are already cruising the streets. But before they can become widespread, carmakers must solve an impossible ethical dilemma of algorithmic morality.

It seems Netflix is stepping up the promotion of their original content with a focus at generating stories around their content

This is a perfect example of lazy template crap that link builders still use when doing outreach, if you are a client that uses people like Vinay Raval I would be deeply worried about both what he is doing to your brand but also can guarantee you will probably get a manual penalty soon enough with this strategy.

I really wonder the quality of app downloads Car Trader Now is getting from Thug Life Facebook videos with students fighting? I also wonder how bad the CTR must be on that call to action... maybe accidentally clicks could be a big source of clicks...

I really wish that more Facebook articles would be translated into local languages I struggle without UK English support... I struggle to correctly translate US English into UK English at times...

Story
Tagline
I share a lot of content and ideas that drive me into rants but more often inspire or educate.
Introduction
I play in the digital space and have been doing it since 1994 so I have a good understanding and interest in most topics so please engage with me and feel free to share and comment on anything I share via this channel. 

I started out in this industry in 2008 under The Lost Agency as a web analyst, since I started back then have worked with several web development companies and several marketing agencies. I've worked on projects focused on Google AdWords, Google Analytics, WebTrends, Facebook Advertising, Twitter Campaigns, Social Media Strategies, SEO Audits, SEO Technical Projects, Link Building Projects and Digital Strategies.

I usually try and blog over at Lost Press Marketing which is my main site but also can be found writing for several industry blogs when I get a good topic and some headspace to write a decent post. I also love promoting conferences and events and working to increase the number of interviews done with industry players.

I'm now based in Amsterdam working for Marktplaats which is part of ebay classifieds group.  Marktplaats is a leading Dutch classifieds platform for Autos, HolidaysServices, Daily Deals, Outlets and more!

I also work with the awesome and highly social team of 2dehands.be and 2ememain.be which is the largest free classifieds site in Belgium. I also have a travel website that I blog about my travels on Travel Network.

Also can you please ensure that you have some details on your profile and some links to your projects or social profiles so I can add you to the right circle. I don't add many people to my circles so please don't feel offended if we engage and I don't add you back.
Bragging rights

I was hungry and there wasn't a great range of places open in the area at that time so my options were limited. I picked this place as they had seating available inside because I wanted to relax and give my feet a rest from all the walking. Be aware they don't really speak a lot of English enough for basic conversation but don't expect to have a discussion about geopolitics and the future of the European union... But unlike several more touristy spots I was used to visiting their menu is only in Italian but since you are reading this Yelp review on your mobile you likely have access to Google translate which makes life easier... I couldn't find a pizza option I liked on their menu so I asked for a custom pizza with mozzarella, mushrooms and tomato. I ended up getting a pizza with cheese, mushrooms and tomato sauce which was close enough I guess but not quite the white pizza with chopped tomato I had in mind but that might have been my fault for not being more specific... I'll never know... They also have two different options for pizza, standard or calzone (folded) I went for standard option. The reason this place gets a four instead of a three star review was that the pizza was cooked in just a few minutes and the wait staff were ever so kind and helpful. The cheese was a bit bland and I was spoilt getting used to having porcini mushrooms and these were just standard mushrooms. For the price of €10 I expected a slightly better pizza. Sure my pizza wasn't amazing by Italian standards but it was good enough for dinner...

The Ortigia Street market is really great place to explore when you are in sircacuse, the markets are nice and authentic with a stream of locals snapping up the best and freshest produce and fish you can buy. Also if the weather is amazing this is the perfect place to stop by for picnic items on the way to the beach. Be aware that prices for the same item can change significantly, I paid €5 for almonds in a pretty package while I saw almonds in a plain package at a different store for €2.50 so maybe have a bit of a look around before buying... I got some amazing fresh strawberries for just €1.75 which was pretty reasonable for a market snack. But sadly I didn't find any mandarins but I did see plenty of blood oranges. There are also plenty of restaurants around the markets if you are wanting a decent meal. If you are unsure where to buy from get there early and follow the locals. Any store that sells out early is usually the one with the best stuff... The markets sell everything you could imagine... * fruit & vegetables * spices and herbs * flowers * fresh fish * meat * cheese * fresh olives * tourist junk * clothes * miscellaneous items

Not a bad spot to stay in Palermo, it's nice and authentic right near several tourist spots. There is a restaurant downstairs but it only seems to be open when I've already found somewhere else to eat and I'm on my way back home. The room I stayed in was nice with plenty of light and a lovely little balcony to enjoy the morning sunshine. The bathroom is a nice size and there is a writing desk in the lounge if you need to write a long review or an article about Palermo. The place has decent free WiFi good enough that you can easily watch Netflix. The only tip I would make if you want a decent sleep in then close the brown shutters on the outside before you head to bed... I left them open so I would wake up earlier so I could explore the city. The only tip for sleeping at night was to unplug the TV as the blue standby light is fairly annoying which I did the second night after waking up think aliens had come to kidnap me... Nope it was just the Telefunken TV... Had a good rest in Palermo and would recommend staying here if you get the chance, also great if you have young kids as the owners have a family of three boys your kids can interact with. Lovely family lovely home.

I contacted this lawyer for employment advice after a friend recommended I use him, I had to followup several times and when I sent the required details he requested he never responded. I'm not impressed that he didn't have the courtesy to respond, having to followup several times is just not good enough. Its been almost 2 months so I had to use a different lawyer for advice.

A great little coffee shop serving just magical hot chocolate... They have 5 different types. To select from: dark, pistachio, white, normal and another one I forgot... I went with the pistachio and 3 small cakes and it was a perfect sugar hit to keep me running until dinner later.

What a great little snack place, if you visit Palermo you have to try these. For only €2 they make a reasonable treat for yourself... I had the traditional meat and peas one and it was amazing
