Hi Ralfy, I enjoyed this one quite a bit, for its smoke and complexity. What I was wondering is whether any single malts matured in new casks (ie not in bourbon or sherry casks)?

We recently had a Q&A with one of our backers - who was kind enough to let us ramble on for figurative pages.

Not sure what to think: 

* Cycling can be excellent. 
* Cycling can be dangerous. 

Those 2 things are not mutually exclusive, are they? Cycling and driving are both dangerous things to do. But we should do more of the former, and do the latter better. So, campaigning for cycling shouldn't ignore the fact that despite the good idea that cycling is, and alongside its benefits to the environment, health and impact on waistline; it isn't as safe as picking flowers. http://buff.ly/XpaSYC

My team are after a full-stack web developer (a Swiss-army-knife of a coder). Based in Cambridge, and we are friendly.
We're looking for an all-round web developer to join our talented team. Plenty of variety, challenges and opportunity available!

Why I opted out of care.data.
#caredata  
Update below For a couple weeks, Radio 4′s PM has been sharing dreadful worries over care.data, an NHS initiative to collate our medical records into a single database. Every caller I’ve heard has complained, and is scared about their data. My own reaction is conflicted. I used to work as an evangelist for a company …

How do you manage contacts on your Mac? The straightforward way, is to use Address Book to keep a set of contacts updated, and this works well for providing other apps with contact info.

However, there are often times when I want to group people into lists (threads, conversation groups, distribution lists.. whatever). Mainly for a quick task of pinging a set of people, but not another, very quickly. If I set myself a task to contact "People interested in foo," then I currently retrace my way through the conversation thread in Mail, and copy people into a blank message.

There must be a better way, surely? Like a local CRM, but simpler, quicker and... well, less Salesforcey, if I'm honest.

If you use Gmail the contact app lets you use groups. When you need to email them just type the group name in the To: field.

Guest post from +Tom Ilube and Rob Styles: Elephant Hunting for Pygmies: How To Introduce #BigData and #LinkedData to Your Company http://bit.ly/TIfmqs 

A fun read, good advice rooted in solid experience, and it gave me an excuse to use this photo I took in Namibia's Etosha National Park a few years ago. :-)
