Going to bed early … in theory

My wife: I’m going to bed early, I’m exhausted. Me: Good idea! I’m just going to have my tea (decaf), watch some quick, random video on YouTube, then I’ll also head to bed early. … I finally get to bed about an hour later, after watching about half a dozen videos about having ADHD.

Happy 30th birthday to the Web

The Web turned 30 yesterday, so I guess this is a belated birthday post about the invention that made so much of how I live my life, and my various careers, possible. In 1989 the world’s largest physics laboratory, CERN, was a hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. Sir Tim Berners-Lee […]

Sad news as Alex Mills passes away
