It's my birthday, so that means I get what I want right? So, here's my Birthday wishes:

1.
One of the as yet unreleased Nexus phones.

2.
A world where all people are treated with dignity, respect and value, where they are recognised for their experiences, wisdom and what they bring to the world. A place where all people are free to learn about, explore and understand their world the way they choose and believe what they want to believe (so long as it does not harm others or detrimentally limit their ability to do the same).

A place where sex, sexuality, gender identify, (dis)ability, education level, income, where you live, fashion choices or anything else impacts how much you get heard, get paid and get considered for opportunities.

A world where the pursuit of higher things – such as artistic expression, scientific wonder, understanding of ourselves individually and collectively – are not seen as luxuries undertaken by 'lefty wankers' or as pursuits only attainable by cashed-up democracies.

3.
A nice bottle of red (or two), enjoyed in good company.

Can we make those happen today people?

+Google​'s Accelerated Mobile Pages and +Facebook​'s Instant Articles ups development costs (requiring multiple deployments of the same webpage), impacts what content you see in organic search results and your News Feed and creates content ghettos.

'... the web is getting split into different kinds of webs: one regular one, another AMP one, and yet a third from Facebook. Instead of fixing the mobile web, we’re fragmenting it.'

It's bad enough I have to get a bus instead of a train because of track work TransLink? But playing 'Say You'll be There' by #SpiceGirls on the rail bus is just cruel and unusual torture!
