As ever, eloquently written sir

Although I do have to disagree with this -

"We live in a very cynical world and most people are very quick to see through most of the chaff"

I agree we live in a very cynical world but it's one where people appear to have blinkers up and choose to not see through the chaff.

You have those who won't look at the news at all, stating no interest or that it's too depressing. So their knowledge of events outside their life is limited to
Buzzfeed articles or what people post on Facebook. 

Then you have those who believe they're informed but only ever look at their chosen slice of the internet. So never get any sense of perspective from other sides of the story.

Very very few people have an interest in actually trying to get a balanced perspective on world events. Mostly because it's so f'ing depressing but it's also hard to do. The conflict in Eastern Ukraine for instance, all of the UK news sources show the agreed EU position that new government in Kiev = good, separatists & Russia = bad. The truth is much greyer and less clear cut. But to really find out about what's really going on out there you have to dig about some pretty shady sites to find information on the alternative side of the story. Now those stories are just as one sided & biased as the UK media's, but it's only once you've seen both sides can you actually make a balanced view of what's going on there.

So, yes, people are cynics. But they're lazy ill-informed cynics with a very vocal opinion.

Thought Lego was a chance to get away from a computer screen for a change?

This is quite cool, (although I'm sure everyone on G+ got one of these too), it's an autocreated compilation/collage of the last 12 months from my photos and videos.

Fascinating stuff, thanks. Clearly a very complicated process, and not easy to put into layman's terms. But gave enough for me to want to learn more. Would love to see more vids like this, trying to explain complicated & interesting techs to the masses.
