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.

The average transaction for Chinese tourists in the UK is currently worth £1534, but often overlooked is the growing 100,000-strong student market. Unlike their domestic counterparts, they have, on average, £1500 a month to spend on non-essential items.

The U.S. has some of the most expensive broadband in the world, while lagging far behind other countries in Internet speeds. And for families in affordable housing, cost can be one of the biggest barriers to getting online.

Exactly, when it's free you're the product not the customer.

Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; "why can't we clean this up?"

Nearly three months ago, to celebrate ‘Halloween’ in the best SEO way, I decided to start sharing some day-to-day SEO "horror" stories with the hashtag "#SEOhorrorStories".

Sports are a pretty intuitive place for augmented reality: we already watch them with a bevy of numerical overlays, replays, and commentary. So Microsoft's "future of football," featuring its HoloLens headset, unsurprisingly makes a lot of sense. It's a highlight reel showcasing every possible football-spectatorship-related use of HoloLens, from getting an expanded view of the screen to watching tiny 3D figures enact plays on your coffee table.

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.

It's a cute little place that is actually quite a good spot if you are looking for somewhere a bit more relaxing for a business lunch. They have fun little service buttons on the tables to attract the waiters attention, the food was served fairly quickly and was quite tasty.

This place has really lost of a lot of it's class... it's run down and depressing place to spend sometime and throw away some money. Compared to the building its a shadow of its former self.... So do yourself a favour a skip this place and save your money for a nice meal or siteseeing around Brisbane. You won't win here you will just lose your money.

not a bad place to hang out and have a meeting or relaxing drink with some friends... they have some nice snacks and their Cheese fondue was quite nice. The staff were nice and friendly and the prices were quite reasonable for the area

Damn interesting place they offer plenty of cheap shots like most of the venues in the red light district. I'd have to say the venue looks like a heavy metal venue but don't fear going in here the staff are friendly honest and like you have a great time and not take things to seriously. Certainly a great place to stop for some cheap shots and some cheap beers.

It was a nice place to explore but accept that it's not a national museum but it's certainly of very high quality and there are lots of interactive exhibits to keep the kids and young at heart entertained. The downside is that there is still a majority of the elements which are in french but they have put a lot of effort into including the same details in English. So if you have a young family or there is some bad weather I would suggest visiting the Museum Toulouse and if the weather is good there is a great outdoor botanical garden to explore. The price is reasonable and they offer discounts for a majority of travellers (students, teachers...) but the 9 euro entry fee was still reasonable for full priced adult ticket. Please not that the museum is commonly referred to as Museum Toulouse.

We ended up heading here as my friends fell for the discounted food offerings but sadly it turned into something of a tourist trap. The staff were nice and friendly and yes the food was very quick but I'd have to say the food was below average. The pizza's cheese patterns matched what you would see if the pizza was microwaved and then heated in the oven and was closer to cheese covered cardboard, I couldn't even each the cabornara pasta. The biggest part of the tourist trap started when they offered bruschetta to the group which everyone greedily said yes but what the server doesn't explain is that they cost €4.50 each which is both sneaky and not what you expect in Amsterdam. The group I was with had several beers and some smokes so I don't really judge their views on the food as they would have eaten anything at that point but they said their meal was good.... The meal cost the group of 5 people €125 for a single main course, an overpriced beer and the overpriced bruschetta... Skip this place and go somewhere else or be careful what you order.

There isn't really too much to say about Pile Gate, it's a wonderful entrance to the old city and a fairly common meeting spot for tours. There is sometimes guards standing at the entrance in uniforms which makes for great photos but often there are handfuls of locals hawking tourist items for sale.
