40 years from ’68, the revolution goes digital (or why Daniel Cohn-Bendit will be forever hip)

    While googling for information on participating in the European Parliament (who would have guessed Zoe to be a Europhile) came across news of a petition to make the European Parliament switch its IT systems to Open Source which has atteacted the support of a hundred MEPs. Who’s behind such a bold measure? None other than Daniel […]

Samsung Tocco – camera phone nightmares

September 30, 2008

So finally, the unveiling of my the fruits of my new camera phone. Mighty underwhelming is my verdict. So much for those 5 mega pixels! The focus is lame and the white balance. The reviews said  “it feels more like a smart phone then a regular mobile”. Hmm, won’t be trusting that site again but […]

Enough of these frivolous postings Zoe! To redress the balance between the vacuous and the worthy, here’s the text behind an address I made last Saturday at the Reuters Journalism Fellowship Programme’s 25th anniversary event at Oxford University.

I decided to give it another shot a couple of weeks ago while sipping a delicious Dark Mocha Frappucino (love those crunchy bits) at Borders and in the process came across a fascinating article on the death of the hipster. Admittedly it pooh poohs the whole ethos […]

I love Paul Weller. You Do Something To Me is one of the most beautiful songs ever, definitely a contender a first wedding dance list (very square to have such things in mind, I’ll admit). So I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that is son Nat is so hot. So I start googling him […]

Party time

  Off topic again but this time I’m unapolagetic. It’s my birthday tomorrow and I can’t wait! The past 365 days have been fabulous. Admittedly it’s been an epic journey. I’ve learnt a lot about life and myself and others. Best of all it’s been a year in which I been able to put lessons learned […]
