Is there an Area 51 in Cambridgeshire?
Something very weird happens each time I drive up a particular stretch of the M11/A14. My car's radar system goes off line. This is the system which enables my car to spot approaching danger from overtaking cars, to warn abou...

Reappraising my blog
I'm reappraising my blog. When I first started blogging on Thursday August 11th, 2005 the world was a very different place. I started initially as a living example of how easy blogging was during an RBI Editor's Conference. It did an excellent job. So much ...

What really lies behind Google's acquisition strategy
Last month I wrote about Google's acquisition spree and was somewhat critical of the depth of the analysis. I promised a follow up on what I thought was possibly really going, so here it is - better late than never.  When ever Google acquisitions get discus...

A good illustration of how much more advanced this Spring was than last - left is April 2013, right is March 2014 - this year's Magnolia flowers are a month earlier

Is Yahoo's move the first of many?
This morning's story in the Guardian about Yahoo's decision to move its European headquarters to Ireland is I think very significant. According to the Guardian, Home Secretary Theresa May summoned the company to a meeting to express the concerns of Scotland...

A new employer-employee compact
The old "job for life" certainties have gone but the laissez-faire approach which has replaced them is neither good for companies, nor good for employees argue Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh in the Harvard Business Review . For most of the 20th ce...

Sharing health data - safely
In principle I think this is a great idea. Big data is transforming industry after industry as well as scientific enquiry and bringing this power to bear on the health of the nation is a noble goal. Unfortunately, the implementation of the scheme was a disa...

Invisible Carbon Dioxide
Two stories in the press today illustrate magnificently the size of the mountain we still have to climb to climate change awareness, let alone decisive action. First the FT writes about the resurgence of interest in coal in the UK by Australian investors, t...

Bringing internet access to the world
There was rather a poor article in the Observer today by John Naughton about Google and Facebook's recent buying sprees. It wasn't that there was anything particularly wrong with the analysis - it is just that it was lame, uncontentious and old hat. The mai...

To Glass or not to Glass
It seems as if Google Glass has travelled quite a long way along its hype cycle even though it has yet to be launched as a finished product. The product was shown initially at the I/O conference in June 2012 and the first beta products (knows as the Explore...

Excellent cafe with home-cooked food and plenty of vegetarian options. Superb location on top of the cliffs at Overstrand. Seating inside and out. Very dog friendly. Well worth a visit.

Good, no-nonsense seaside bar serving real ale (Adnams usually). Plenty of seating inside and out and a good, basic and good-value menu (featuring lots of chips). Food and drink all hours - very convenient. Much better since the smoking ban (aren't they all). Slightly irritating piped music even outside.

Excellent value friendly cafe with slightly eccentric opening hours in this busy Norfolk market town. Quite cosy, so it can be difficult to seat a large family!
