If Twitter suddenly logged you out of your mobile apps and won't let you back in — or a device or a desktop, actually — you're not alone. In fact, you're in damned good company. We're locked out, too. Question is if any of us remembers how to communicate with each other with more than 140 characters. I have a hunch we'll be OK. For more, check back with Twitter's status page, which...

Last week we were in London for the 2014 +Times Higher Education Awards, which recognise and celebrate exceptional talent, dedication and innovation across the sector.

We sponsored the award for Outstanding ICT Initiative of the Year, won by the Open University's OpenScience Laboratory. We were hugely impressed by all of the shortlisted institutions though, and in this podcast Jisc futurist +Martin Hamilton talks us through the projects and initiatives.

"A Digital Dark Age?" - new +Jisc #TechForesight from me
Most of us now have a cupboard or two's worth of old media that we're keeping because one day we might want to go back to it. Floppy disks, old hard drives, audio and video cassettes, CDs and so on. But how many of us no longer posses a device capable of reading/playing that media?

I think the impact may be much wider than just taxi drivers. It could potentially impact the whole automotive industry. A car for a single journey available at a moments notice, straight to your destination, then no parking - it just carries on and does another job. This could totally break the car ownership model - wasteful because most cars spend 20+ hours a day just parked up - which would totally shake up the car manufacturing and sales industries. Add to that practically maintenance free electric propulsion...
