My “old” research supervisor once told me (slightly paraphrased): “Once you know the right question, then the answer is obvious”. Of course, the real trick is to find the questions that you can answer with very limited resources – without limiting…

To-be or not to-be; as-is the question

Everyone is (not) an architect!

It continue to amaze me how willingly people offer their advice on software architecture. Most people would struggle to understand the inner-workings of email, but that doesn't seem to stop them. And if they do have some experience with the topic –…

Tony Abbott's government has made it harder to pick the April's fool jokes. 
From Bill Shorten’s eye-watering zinger to NT News’ declaration they’re replacing croc coverage with serious news, politicians and the media took us all for fools

Introduction
I try to apply the "keep it simple" principle to all aspects of my life. But as I have found, it is KIS and not KISS, because there is nothing simple or stupid about keeping it simple - the second law of thermodynamics really does apply to you as an 'isolated system' :)

I am a software architect by trade (but not one with a coding focus), although my life by choice revolves around my two boys and wife.

Software geek/nerd by necessity.
Bragging rights
2 wonderful boys, 1 beautiful wife, 0 regrets
