It's getting a little uncomfortable, isn't it? Creepy even. Watching Tony Abbott beat himself to death.

There's still no word on what that mysterious white spot is. In fact, the mystery has multiplied.

Zombies movies #madmax #style 
Kiah and Tristan Roache-Turner’s zombie flick breaks all the rules, not least in offering screenings-to-order – just as well given its illegal download count

Unbelievable behaviour by Bandis #auspol
George Brandis's attack on Gillian Triggs, and her testimony that she was asked to resign as president of the Human Rights Commission, shows he has trampled all over the conventions that govern his own role as first law officer, writes Michael Bradley. A series of bombs were detonated in a ...

Despite promising to be more consultative after the non-coup two weeks ago, Tony Abbott is still making poor unilateral decisions and statements that are chipping away at his authority.

Need to re-read it, but Apple Pay clearly wasn't going to be just Apple Pay. 
We talk​ed​ about it earlier that Apple Pay 2.0 will be a giant step towards a complete wallet​ and will have coupons, loyalty and ticketing functionalities​. And today we have solid proof that it is ​actually going to happen​. U.S. Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple recently that revealed a new Apple Pay …

Meet the turquoise killifish, the subject of my latest column for The New York Times​. It's an animal that packs a lifetime into a few months. Scientists are now studying it for clues about how we grow old.  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/03/science/in-short-lived-fish-secrets-to-aging.html
Turquoise killifish last no more than a few months, giving researchers a faster way of learning more about the mechanics of getting older.

The classical description of disruption in business, and especially technology, is that a new product (method, business model etc) appears that’s not as good as the existing way of doing things, but that’s much cheaper. The existing industry thinks it’s a joke, and certainly not a threat. But over time, it gets better while staying cheaper, and then, sooner or later, it’s not a joke at all.  You can see this basic story over and over...

As scientific researchers, we are often surprised by some of the assumptions made about us by those outside our profession. So we put together a list of common myths we and our colleagues have heard anecdotally…

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
