As someone who comments on the IT industry for a living I'm obliged to keep abreast of all the major social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and my interest in music and photography means I also maintain Sound Cloud and Flickr sites. It becomes a problem to keep track of all the stuff that I've posted in all these different locations, and this website is my feeble attempt to pull together some of the more significant parts of my online life in one place.
You'll find music, pictures, politics, philosophy and programming projects on this site: under Computing there’s a page devoted to my ideas about minimal software user interfaces called Simpleware, with a couple of sample programs to try, and there's a page of collected quotes and reflections I call Cool Quotes.
All my published books are displayed on the My Books page (and on my Amazon Author Page) while some of the book reviews I've contributed to The Political Quarterly journal are on the Blogs page, along with back-issues of my PC Pro Idealog column, from the first in 1994 up until six months ago, and my political blog Caustic Comments.
