Pre-Envoyian, also known as CeCeTAcian ... characterised by rapid activity amongst many life forms, mostly concentrated in two strata, Norfolk's Broads and Upper Whitehall. Significant invention and development of new technologies. Neo-Envoyian ... a quieter period of calm reflection and preparation for renewed growth. Early indications of polices on digital lifeforms and how they might interact in the future digital age. Envoyian ... a lengthy...

Many moons ago I wrote a blog post asking: "Is it unfair to characterise the IT industry as dodgy characters in cheap suits selling wish fulfilment to out of their depth executives?" Sadly those guys have now moved on to package and sell social into the business world. People are being fleeced for over engineered, over priced and over sold bloatware. This is not in anyone's long term best interests.

It came as quite a shock a few weeks ago, when I realised Puffbox Ltd was fast approaching its fifth birthday - specifically, the fifth anniversary of its incorporation at Companies House. Perhaps because I'm a parent of two young girls, five years feels like a significant milestone: it's the age at which a child starts 'proper' schooling, and begins the journey down the long road to adulthood. It also marks the longest time I've ever stayed in a...

This reminds me of the Seinfeld sketch where George does indeed to the 'opposite'.

The definition of a revolution: it destroys the perfect and enables the impossible. The music business was perfect. Radio, record chains, Rolling Stone magazine, the senior prom, limited access to recording studios, the replaceable nature of the LP, the baby boomers... it all added up to a business that seemed perfect, one that could run for ever and ever. The digital revolution destroyed this perfect business while enabling the seemingly impossi...

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’ Most of us don’t have the power which Humpty Dumpty claimed for himself to make words mean what we want them to mean. We may be able to stretch and pummel meanings, we may even be able to add new meanings to existing words, but we can’t generally obliterate older meanings, and we certainly can’t choose which of a s...

Story
Tagline
I used to be a contender
Introduction

Until early 2009 I was a civil servant with responsibility for digital media strategy at the UK Ministry of Justice. I led a team managing a portfolio of websites and was a leading light in shaping and pushing the agenda for web2.0 / social media adoption in government.

I took an extended break from work to spend time with my family.

Now I work at the UK Government Digital Service helping to transform public services.

Amongst other things I founded Govcamp and Teacamp.

Before I joined the civil service, I worked on web ’stuff’ in wider public sector, corporate, and agency environments.
