1. In Basildon, a pretty grim suburb to the east of London, a friend told me that an entire strip mall was looted. Every shop in the mall was ransacked, except for the book store.
2. Talk about dumb criminals... Some of the looters have been arrested because they left the cardboard boxes for the plasma TV's they stole, out with the trash.
I'm an ideas person at heart, moonlighting as an entrepreneur with a sideline in fun and inventive.
My formative years were the club and rave scene - a scene I still love to this day, and will be forever grateful for everything it brought me. Not least my beautiful son.
I like to experiment with different fun things and have been fortunate to learn many eclectic crafts along the path. I've been a DJ, Programmer and TV Reporter among things, a cab driver, pizza deliverer and farmer among others.
In 2000 I published a little book called 'Dawn of the 21st Century' featuring photos taken by people from round the world on the night of the turning of the Millennium. A very early experiment in crowd sourcing, it proved to me the power of people and Internet was profound.
I'm using G+ to share things which I find interesting, and to meet new likeminded people.
I'm rooting for G+ because I can't stand Faceliftbook no more.
