And today’s homily…

Our lesson for today is from the book of Olu’ chapter 15:1-10. Let us commence: 1. Thou shall not feel entitled to another person’s time. Except where you have ‘put in some deposits’ with them, and even then that deposit must be mutually acknowledged, as opposed to being acknowledged solely by the party that places […]

Writings of Mr Richard Dawkins

Mr Richard Dawkins is all at once witty, entertaining and almost accurate in his writings.

The long road from idea to revenue

(Warning: May not make a lot of sense, also, don’t take personal) First things first: idea is nothing! it is simply that thing we all have in our heads, sometimes even have on paper and that we hope it/they will somehow turn us into multi-millionaires and build us an empire.

Diamond is a naturally occurring chemical compound made up entirely of the element carbon. It has a 3 dimension crystalline structure, responsible for its hardness.   The […]

Yes, we do magic…

But not (a lot of) mind reading. First we need to understand the requirements. Yes, you need to tell us what is on your mind. Then we need to verify the underlying business case. Not always our business, but (a) it is a value added service to make all our lives easier, yours mostly and […]

Ok, so I missed the grand entry of wearable computers*. The entourage possibly slipped by whilst I caught a quick shuteye. But they are here and if you, like me a few moments before electing to write this post, was waiting for a/the grand launch of wearable computer devices, well you missed it and may have […]
