Article in Medium When I was a small child my entire family lived in the remote Southern Californian desert. Our only access to electronic media was a gargantuan satellite dish that delivered no less than five hundred channels of scrambled, hissing static.

Healthcare Interview Taken from a recent interview with Mark Allardyce, a leading innovator in the field of online privacy solutions and applying advanced interactive technology to confidential content. He’s produced dozens of software titles and Internet services since the 80’s. Many of these systems and apps have been very successful, touching countless lives around the world.

Euro Article Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. I wrote an article in February this year titled ‘where have all the heroes gone’ hoping for Britain to be brave and believe in itself. I was as surprised as everyone when last week we did exactly that.
Euro Article In light of the upcoming referendum, I recently briefed my US colleagues on the situation as I see it and, amid the coming noise, were there tech opportunities?I have always believed that Europe’s strength lay in its diversity, its competitiveness, its friendly rivalry, its cooperation, copying the best practices of neighbours, its independent pride and patriotism. It’s not news that, generally, most Brit’s have a sweeping disregard for politicians. None more so than the power hungry expense cheating Mandarins of Brussels. How can it be just, that such ‘suits’ fairly control the affairs of a variety of sovereign states from afar. History shows us that they clearly can’t. Just look at Greece, the founders of democracy, the home of heroes like Hercules and Achilles, currently being bullied by bureaucrats from Brussels. These EU megalomaniacs are removing all parliamentary self rule from the birthplace of democracy. We watched as those power crazed Eurocrats…

Healthcare Article So there I was, the proud father of a perfectly healthy, if not sometimes grumpy, rebellious, thirteen year old boy. He was doing well at school, playing football and rugby, studying hard, going out with his friends, just awarded his karate black belt, feeling fine, enjoying life, active, could eat any food, handle pretty much any drink, having a cool time – perfectly fine.
Security Article Imagine that someone was watching you, eavesdropping on your entire family, all of their emails, texts, thoughts, ideas, photographs and listening into every phone call. Imagine how you’d feel. Imagine that if, after challenging them, they managed to bully you and bully your loved ones, because they were bigger, smarter, richer, more articulate, more powerful, more popular. Angry?
Christmas Carols The visual feast of Christmas carollers stood under a lamplight, warming their hands on an open fire. What better way is there of celebrating Christmas than hearing such splendid songs and maybe singing along with our friends. What a lovely, traditional way of bridging the centuries, connecting us to our forefathers, who sang the same songs all those Christmases ago.

Interview In 1895, the Lumiere Brothers showed their first ten, very short films to a bewildered, intrigued and possibly even frightened audience in Paris’ Grand Café. Thirty years later, John Logie Baird offered his first, flickering television images to an equally bemused world but in the rather less august surroundings of Selfridge’s department store in London.
Interview “It’s not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
